Around and around I go. Constipation, back pain, abdominal pain, constant feeling that my bowels are not empty. Remember the days when, as a child, you just went potty and that was that. Simple, easy, never a problem, no pain involved. I look at other people and wonder - anyone else feeling like me? I look at my life and despair overpowers me - will I EVER be normal again? Am I going to spend the rest of my life controlled by my bowels ? I have been struggling forever with this problem. It just seems to drag on and on. No medication is successful in getting me back to my youthful normal bowels. I am trying daily walk/runs now, drinking lots of water, eating light (sorry, but all the fiber is just too hard on my system, although I do use Citricul) and TRYING to feel halfway decent. No luck. I am in the DEPTHS of depression BIG TIME!! I just got back some photos (me in them) and was appalled at how bloated my tummy looked. I hardly eat anything, what's the deal here? I am going back to my doctor tomorrow. I don't even know what to say to him anymore. No one has a cure for me. I am sinking . . .

I'll trade half my D problem for half of your C problem. Have you tried almond milk? It blows me out! No milk in it just almond juice

Hi Chloe! I know what you are going through. I also have the "C" problem. One thing that I have started taking that helps me is Senakot. It comes in a small brown bottle. All it is, is a mild stool softner. If I have noticed that I have gone two days without having a BM I take 1 to 2 senakot and I usually go the next day or so. This also helps the BM to break up and it is not as painfull. I still have mild cramping but not as bad as before Senakot. I have also changed my diet. I can't sit down and eat a whole meal so I try to eat smaller portions more often! ( Which is a little hard while at work) Try eating fruit for a snack instead of chips and stuff. Which you are propably already doing. If I can help you in any other way just let me know. Hang in there chick-a-dee! We are all with you!

Everything that sass said is ditto for me.
Have you tried the fibercon rather than the liquid? Or Equalactin, They are chewable and bother me less than the fibercon.Take Care,Rose
