HiI have alternating ibs. But these past three weeks, I have had the worst constipation. Usually I only have one bout of it and then it goes back to diarrhea or actually normal bowel movements. But the first week I was constipated for a week and then had very bad diarrhea that weekend. The next week I was constipated for the whole week and had diarrhea again on Sunday. The next week I was constipated till Thursday and I had a somewhat small bowel movement, and I've been constipated since. So it's been 8 days since I had a bowel movement, and it freaks me out truthfully. I don't know what to do. I've tried to manually remove some, but there's nothing up there. I'm sure I probably need to take a laxative or something, I just don't want to. Is there any really gentle laxatives that don't cause tons of pain? Has anyone tried just drink apple juice or maybe prune? I really don't want to result to laxatives. I've never had to take them before and I really don't want to start. Or should I just try to wait it out a little bit? I'm not in any pain really, occasionally I feel like I got but I can't and that's that. I would appreciate any advice, sorry this is soo long
