Hi I'm just posting this because I'm a bit desperate now and in a lot of pain.
I have had no bowel movements for about 9 days, after i had a stint of bowels movements which were occurring about four times a day. I believe this happened after I went off the Pill and I was so happy I thought all my bowel trouble had gone :(
The thing is I have ME and I am on an elimination diet. In Jan I went off dairy (lactose) and I totally seized up. I didn't actually release anything for about two weeks, and finally after trying about 5 different laxatives.. I got relief with Bisacoydl which actually in turn made me vomit and pass out as well (my chronic fatigue syndrome doesn't bode well with any sort of drug) After this was when I went off the Pill and things gradually got better and the pain and spasms subsided. Well about two weeks ago I went back on dairy to see whether I was truly intolerant. I cut it out again a week later.. and here I am.. no bowel movement for over a week. I can't eat, my usually flat stomach now looks like I'm three months pregnant and it hurts when I breathe in.
Don't talk about doctors because mine has been so unhelpful. She's asked me on three occasions "and are you eating?". It's so horrible not being taken seriously and I've had a tough time in the past year trying to get my CFS recognised. all she does is hand me more nerve stimulating laxatives which I feel are just plain harmful.
Is there anything I can do today to get them moving?
conventional or alternative remedies, anything is appreciated!!
thank you xx
