does anyone know of any pain relief medication/herbal remedies or anything that could help with pain relief for gi pain and stomach pain. for flair ups or just everyday pain because it's becoming harder and harder to manage :( (i can't take regular pain medication because most of not all of it is constipating and the ones that i've tried that aren't, just don't work at all or have horrible side effects)
hello! i am currently pursuing a hirschsprungs diagnosis. i have had chronic constipation my entire life, i am now almost twenty and my constipation and pain only seems to be getting worse. i was wondering if anyone here has had hirschsprungs disease and if theyd be willing to message me about any information or tips or surgery outcomes? whatever theyd be comfortable with? i am kinda just grasping at straws. this is the fourth gi doctor i have seen, not counting the countless ones i saw as a baby, and i feel hopeless at this point. so any information is very appreciated, thank you!
Hi, my constipation is stopping me from living a normal life. In addition to bloating that causes fatigue and lack of energy. Does someone has the same case?
Hi, I'm Cutes, I just use that as a cover name to respect my privacy on here but it's nice to meet you and I was just wondering can constipation feel like ovary pain? And what should I do to help this more?
Okay… stupid question.. can people die from not pooping? Last year I was in serious pain… so much so that I couldn’t move. My dad thought my appendix had exploded or something. I had an ambulance take me to the hospital. They gave me something for the pain. While I was there they had to give me an IV? Bc I was so dehydrated! I was so loopy at the time, and started flirting with the nurse. They took some sort of scan of my body… afterwards I was told to wait for my results… when my nurse came back she looked me dead serious in the eyes and said “Your full of crap!” Suddenly I burst into laughter (bc I was still loopy) it was funny at the time until… I looked at my mothers face. She was concerned and so was the nurse. I have always had issues using the bathroom… I just didn’t think it was that bad. Apparently I hadn’t gone to the bathroom for so long… now my muscles in that area don’t work?
How to get rid of occasional constipation
So I’ve been constipated since birth. My doctor told me that I need to be on miralax for the rest of my life. Is that safe? Anyone else doing the same?
I've been taking Milk of Magnesia daily for about 2 years now - it's the only thing that keeps me regular and comfortable. I really don't want to be dependent on it for the rest of my life, but I've gotten frustrated whenever I've tried and failed to wean myself off of it. Does anyone else have any experience with it? Thanks! :-)
I developed severe constipation about 10 years ago. i exercise and eat right. ive discussed this with my dr but nothing that was recommended has helped. I've tried everything from Miralax, drinking more water, daily laxative... high fiber foods just make me bloated.. The only thing that works is to plan my week out and take a bunch of laxatives on the night before and go the next morning. This is not healthy. Help?
Hi, I've been dealing with chronic constipation for about a year now, and nothing seems to help, it just keeps getting worse. Docs haven't found the cause yet. I'm wondering if it could be Endo around my colon, has anyone experienced that? If so, what has helped and what has it been like for you? Was the onset very sudden?
I go to the bathroom everyday but I have constipated quality stools. They are rock hard/pebbles but after that everything is normal. Miralax helps but is anyone taking anything else or any natural suggestions? I've tried high water intake, low and high fiber, metamucil, benefiber, exercise.
