Hi All,

I thought I would start posting by sharing my story. I have had terrible bloating and stomach ache for the past couple of years, on and off. Mainly through both my pregnancies and I kept going back and forth to my Doctor. At first they thought I had IBS but, seeing as it came and went, they eventually just diagnosed constipation.
It was a straight forward condition but seemed to take an age for them to give me any treatment for it. What would I do without the internet for help in everything including diagnosing this condition???
I eventually found this site, which has been a great help, and also find this site useful for treatment, symptoms and causes of constipation.

HTH anyone else who is going through this uncomfortable condition.

  • Has anyone suggested more fiber to you? Or fiber substitute such as Benefiber? And lots and lots of water?

  • Thanks Beth. I have completely changed my diet these days. Lots more fibre, water and much healthier eating in general. I haven't had it for a while, thank goodness.
