Hi there, I have been taking Zelnorm for 5 days and so far all I find is that I feel and hear things moving through my bowels. I got very constipated and had to have an enema. After the initial emptying, I have had about 3 almost normal movements. Is this a normal reaction to this drug? I have been having bowel problems (bloating, constipation, severe pain, nausea) for a number of years. I have had all kinds of tests done with no results. About 3 years ago I hurt my lower back at work and an inflammed disk is pressing on a nerve in that area. I have been told that this can cause the lower part of the bowel to have impaired function. Although this is not the problem for the years before that. Lately my condition has been keeping me at home most of the time. I seem to be spending my days trying to go to the bathroom and afraid of another terrible attack which usually takes me to the hospital with not much help except sometimes some pain killers. I would give anything to be able to live and plan my life without this constant disease. I would appreciate any information or similar situations brought to my attention. Thanks!
