  1. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hi all I first posted here earlier in the year - I'd been suffering from severe, unremitting constipation that was finally diagnosed as "IBS-C with slow transit constipation / colonic inertia", and nothing was working. Below is a list of things that I tried: • Movicol / Miralax (2 sachets a...
  2. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Greetings, I was diagnosed with colonic inertia and pelvic floor dysfunction. Although I have been improving my symptoms of PFD, I still seem to have a motility issue. I was wondering if anyone resorted to colonics with colonic inertia, and has bad side effects. I always retain lots of water...
  3. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I have been having constipation problems for the past 1-2 years, and everything really slowed down.

  4. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I have been on Linzess 290 for over a year. My GI and I have questioned if it actually works. For me it would not work along; I have taken it along with various herbal remedies. So, of recent after over a year of taking it when nothing could give me diarrhea; boom. For someone with chronic...

  7. Diet
    This has got to be the most important thing for me - not overeating. I can do everything else right - eat dinner early, eat the right foods - nothing with too much fibre or starch, no excess fruit, but if I overeat all of that is for nothing. It took me a really long time to realise that I was...
  8. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I wanted to share this with others out there. As I have researched a little on the effects of weather and the motility of the bowel and it could help you answer some unanswered questions. During the winter months I get many people complain to me about constipation. This could be coincidence or...
  9. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I have been diagnosed with Colonic Inertia and Gerd but not IBS. This has all just happened over the past 6/8 months and my PCP & (not really informative) GI Dr. are still trying, I hope, to figure out what happened. However, they may be just trying to get me out of their office with generic...
