I have been VERY constipated for the last 7 years of my life....in conjunction with that I feel like i have swallowed about 10 balloons every day. Always in my lower gut...sometimes upper after i eat. i read about fiber helping w/ the gas/bloating but not w/ constipation. Can anyone shed some light on this? I have acquired the nasty habit of pushing on my lower stomach all the time b/c i am so bloated and uncomfortable...i am at a loss as to what to do. i know a lot is trial and error. Thanks in advance.
