So I've been in chronic gut pain for over a year and tried many things to no avail. I take restoralax everyday with fibre pills and amitriptyline at night but so far I'm just getting worse. I constantly feel like I need to have a movement but I either don't have one or have a liquid movement and still feel no relief after. I have bloating and pain of the abdomen and have been in a downward pain spiral for 3 weeks. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated

so sorry for all your problems.


i hope you have a good gastroenterologist.


have you tried any antispasmodics--like bentyl or librax?  librax did wonders for my abdominal pain.


i see you're taking  amitriptyline .  hopefully it's helping with your pain but it can have constipation as a side effect.


also, as far as constipation is concerned, fiber can help relieve constipation for some people if the cause of their C is a lack of fiber to begin with but if you have slow transit constipation, fiber can make things worse.  dumping more fiber in a colon that's already moving slowly can just back things up all the more.  i found i did better with a diet low in fiber.


good luck.  hope you can find some relief.

these are just my own thoughts. for expert medical advice please contact a health care professional.
