I posted this under wrong diagnosis because I didn't know there was a forum for these problems. For a month now I couldn't have a bowel movement on my own. I used many laxatives and had to use them more than once for just a slight movement. I have very sharp pains in my lower left stomach and cramps whenever I eat. I started to get cramps like laxatives give you whenever I'd eat latly and had to go to the bathroom (I suppose from the bottles of Magnesium Citrate the doctor had me take.) My hospital tests came up clear, but I'm still in so much pain. What could it be?

  • Well, I don't want to scare you but my mother had similar problems and it was colon cancer. You really need a colonoscopy. Talk to your doctor about getting one and the sooner the better.
