I just went to the doctor again, I was diagnosed with Chronic constipation after years of episodes of severe stomach pain followed by me fainting from the pain. My doctor's have refused to do further testing aside from an x-ray, I've already had an x-ray, I'm so disappointed in the lack of care/willingness to test further and I feel hopeless and sad. I just don't want to be in pain anymore.

      If you can see a GI doctor and get a referral they might have more med options for you. Motility medications so far have been a huge step up for me from laxatives. I’ve had chronic stomach pain and the ER isn’t much help other than to tell me to call my GI or take more of the laxatives until they work.

      I’m so sorry you’re in pain 😥 do you have the resources to try pelvic floor physical therapy? Using Citrucel has also helped me immensely (it’s a fiber laxative alternative to Metamucil that doesn’t cause gas, it tastes like sugar-free tang)
