Question: I don't even remember the last time I went. I also haven't been hungry. I still eat but I doubt I eat more than 700 calories a day. I also weighed myself and I have actully lost 7 pounds in a few weeks. I have been stressed but I have been in more stressful situations and this hasn't happend except some weightloss. Any ideas what's going on and how I can fix it?

For constipation, medication is only a very temporary solution if it works. Wheat germ and wheat bran are very high fiber foods that often help for constipation. Constipation can cause anal fissures, hemorrhoids and also some far more serious problems as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22r... . You probably need to improve your diet as you seem to have a constipation problem. For constipation, castor oil is very good for a one-off remedy as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22c... but it is unsuitable for regular use. For constipation, suppositories, laxatives, fiber supplements and enemas are all totally unnecessary if you eat the right foods. All fruit and vegetables in very large amounts are laxative. You need to permanently change your diet or you are likely to get colon cancer. Constipation can make you extremely unwell and can lead to colon cancer as it causes a build up of carcinogenic toxins in the system. The intake of foods such as milk, cheese, white rice, white flour and red meat should be restricted, because they tend to contribute to constipation. Any food that has had the fiber stripped out, the nutrients processed out or slows down the digestion is a constipation culprit. Here's a list of foods shown to cause constipation problems: •Meats, especially fatty meats, red meat and processed meats, •Dairy Products, such as cheese, ice cream and whole milk, •Fast Foods – burgers, French fries and other fried foods, pizza, etc., •Refined grains, like white rice or any refined white flour products, •Highly starchy foods – white potatoes, corn and all refined grains, •Pastries and other high sugar products, such as cakes, cookies and pies, •Deep-fried foods, chips and other foods that are high in bad fats. You can see lots more in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22n... which tells you "Natural Ways to Relieve Constipation" and the right foods to eat.

You may be eating to much fiber. Despite popular belief, a surplus of fiber is not good for the body. Try to lay off of the fiber for a while honey ;)

Stress can be a contributing factor. There are several ways of trying to get your system active again. You can try to drink two bottles of water and that sometimes gets the bowels moving and will help you go. You can also try a low does laxative that will kick in in about a day. If you are feeling pain, then you can use a suppository to help you go between 15-30 minutes. A suppository is a small pill looking thing, slippery, that you insert rectally. I had to do so once, very scared to do it, but finally did and the relief you feel afterwards is actually very beneficial. Those are a few options. You might want to consider increasing your daily fiber intake. Best of luck!

if you havent been eating and you're stressed no wonder youre constipated, first i would try and eat more, miniumum 1200 calories, but you probably need more than that, just try and have atleast 3 decent sized meals a day and possibly and in 1-3 small snacks if you believe you are in the underweight catagroy now try and gain some weight, if you are unsure about my advice, be sure about this, see a doctor, wont hurt, they will tell you the same, eat more and they will check your bmi

Not trying to freak you out but it's a possibility that you might have hemorrhoids (if you don't usually drink water--like when you where a kid or something). hemorrhoids are wads of veins that sit and the end of your rectum. so theyre pretty painful. you may wanna grab a mirror and check down there. they can be very painful because they block the flow of...poo...and cause constipation if thats not the case you probably have a regular (sorta) case of constipation. try laxatives and avoid things like cheese and ice cream. well, wait, you already did that. um...try going in for a colonoscopy for your doctors to view your colon. you can also try a colonic. a colonic is where water is released into your colon and sent into your intenstine with a tube that is inserted in your anus and the water would cause the muscles of the colon to contract and feces will feel the pressure and sort of flow out into a closed waste system. basically, you're getting cleaned out. you'll feel a bit of discomfort in the abdomen but you'll get cleaned out :] good luck!
