For constipation olive oil often helps. If a table spoon of olive oil doesn't help perhaps you could keep increasing the amount. For constipation, medication is only a very temporary solution if it works. Often you get side effects. 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 and avoid the wrong 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.

Sounds like IBS. Irritable bowel syndrome. I suffer from it and it is a bear to deal with. The doctor reccomended "citrucel" not "metamucil'(it gives gas.) He also prescribed Bentyl for cramping. He did not prescribe anti anxiety to me yet , but this is an accepted treatment. Do some research on IBS , and go to your doctor armed with a little knowledge. It will get worse if you don't treat it , and people get tired of US "bellyaching". I understand your suffering , but others won't. edit. I will also say , if " I " take laxitives , they make me miserable , and still takes a day or two to produce any movement. And stress is a major componet. I eat smaller meals , more often , and take "naps" or really just "meditate" for 20 -30 minutes till I feel a little better.

It used to happen to me when I was a teenager. Just eat more fiber during the day (apples, bananas, bran cereal, etc.) and you'll be fine.

Go to your doctors, explain the full problem. Maybe you could buy some laxatives to help. You shouldn't be embarrassed about it though, it might make it worse!

CUT BACK on the milk, it can cause you to be consitapated. It happens to my daughter all the time. Start drinking some juice. White grape juice, prune juice, apple juice are all good for helping loosing someone up. I would speak to a Dr. because they can give you a special type of liquid to drink to help your system clean itself out and keep you regular. If that doesnt work then they may need to take a different step. Normally they do not want you to stay that backed up for over a month, as it can cause you medical problems. If it is causing you to have pains down your legs then somewhere your bowels are already pushing against nerves..
