Ok everyone...I hate to bring this up...but I'm having an issue.
I suffer from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and normally I have no problem passing bowel movements...in fact I go more than I'd like too some times, but at this time I find my self constipated. I've never had this problem before. I normally go at least 1-2 times daily, but tomorrow will be my 5th day without going at all & I've been in quite a bit of pain for the last couple of days.
I'd take a laxative, but with my IBS, I'm afraid too...mainly because of the IBS, but also because I suffer from a spastic colon & stomach & I'm afraid it will set that off also.
For the last 2 days, I've been taking fiber supplements, as well as eating more fiber & drinking at least 80 oz. of water...but it's not doing anything at all.
Please, someone tell me what I can do. I'd go see my dr, but at the time I don't have any medical insurance, and I don't have the money to see him without it.
Anyway....I'm open for suggestions.
