I'm a 33 year old male who has IBS-C. I cannot take it anymore. I've always had lower digestive issues....most commonly, feelings of incomplete evacuation, massive massive massive amounts of gas...passing gas every 30 seconds to a minute all night long, often getting no sleep as a result...and constipation. It used to be that maybe 10 days a month were bad. Since January, it has been 30. I have been BADLY constipated since then. At the doctor's advice, I have added fiber, I have added MiraLax, I have added probiotics...I am drinking fennel tea, I am taking fish oil...I have increased my fluid intake. I've tried enemas, mag sulfate...nothing provides anything close to lasting relief. MAYBE I feel better for a day. Then it all comes back. The shame of it all is, I am otherwise in the best shape I have been in my entire life. I lost 75 lbs over the last 18 months or so, and my diet is MUCH better now. I eat more whole grains, more vegetables, more lean proteins, and less junk. I exercise 4-5 times a week whether it be jogging, walking, or weight training. I've carved 10 inches off my waist line, and have a great life and great young kids who I love.And yet this clouds every moment of every day. Constantly feeling bloated...massive amounts of horrible very foul smelling gas. Cramping. Misery. Hate traveling in cars with people because I am so embarassed. I was up cramping bloated and passing gas the entire night before father's day...didn't sleep a minute. So all father's day I was in like a coma...couldnt even enjoy the day. I've missed work because of it too...on multiple occassions. It's even our sex life, as many nights I am just physically unable to get past the pain and discomfort to even consider romance.Over the past few months I have had x-rays, ct-scans, colonoscopies...everything checks out clear. I almost wish there was a tangible problem that could be corrected. As it stands, I am barely able to defecate with a lot of coffee every morning...and even then, it never feels close to a complete voiding...I can tell there is still a lot back there that isnt coming out.I wish there was a pill that would just make my bowel normal. It seems even the few meds out there are only for women. I feel so hopeless. I feel like I am losing so many days minutes and hours I could be enjoying with my family.
