I have been constipated for a few days now. I have pain and pressure like I have to go but i get nothing. When I push its painful. Took some stool softeners...no help, then laxative, passed a hard stool and had some diarrhea, but not much. Now I'm back to not being able to go again. Even with lots of water, fruit, etc. Stool softeners and more laxatives tonight but still nothing. Hurts to sit down even. Feels like something is in there. Could this be a blockage or a fecal impaction??

I do have IBS with diarrhea and constipation so I wasn't too concerned at first but I'm getting a little concerned. This is new !!!
