I hurt in the rectum area or anal area all the time because of constipation. I have used everything and nothing is doing any good.

I have gone 4 days without a bowel movement but am not feeling anything and it is like everything is normal.

Right now I went to the doctor to see why my stomach and back were hurting. He took an x-ray and said I was constipated. I never hurt this bad from constipation before. He gave me some stuff to clean me out, I drank it 3 hours ago, and it hadn’t worked yet.

I experience bloating, gas, headache, and eventually fever and vomiting when I have constipation.

I have bowel movements maybe twice a week. When I have to go it seems to be stuck and I pass only small hard stool. Sometimes I will get sick to my stomach and will vomit. Then I empty with very loose almost like diarrhea. Sometimes I will have blood show, bright red but I have a hemorrhoid and I think it's from straining. After all that I feel much better and my next movement will be in about four days.

I have been dealing with bowel problems and have had serious surgery. I take Lax-A-Day once a day. The last two times taking one of them now causes me more pain and no stool. My bladder also seems to interfere with my bowel.

I started taking medication for my diabetes and found that I started having difficulty when I go to the bathroom. I am not regular as before. I don't know how to treat it.


You are constipated if you don't have a bowel movement every day. See Answer
