Hi everyone!I am only 18 yo, just started college. I have to tell you that part of the reason why I choose a community college is becuse of my severe constipation. I figured that I wouldn't be able to treat it when living in a dorm with someone my age.I;ve had it for 4.5 years now. The only relief I found is coffee. But even coffee doesn't always work. Most of the time it works great! But sometimes, for about 2 weeks, it feels like my body takes a break and coffee doesn't have any effect.I don't want to depend on coffee.I eat a lot of fiber, drink water, everything that I need to go to the bathroom.. But nothing works.Even the laxatives don't work. I mean sure they may "soften" everything, but I never feel the need to go to the bathroom.I've been to a pediatrician twice before I turned 18. On the third time, she sent me to a Neutrition expert. I did what she told me to do. Nothing worked.I am thinking of going to a real doctor now, but I am afraid that he will do that colonoscopy (sp?). Will he?I thought that I may have IBS. Could I at such a young age?Help me. I am always in a bad mood because of my problem. I can't even eat when I'm constipated because I know it will cause more pain and more waste in my colon.
