Can anyone help. I have had on and off back pain, very severe sometimes since 30th May 2009. It has got me admitted to A&E 3 times, upon the 3rd time I got told I had faecal impaction. I have been trying to control the constipation with Movicol 8 sachets a day, weaning down to about 1-2.
I also eat a handful of nuts each day, drink concentrated orange juice, east bran and fibre - all the things that keep you regular. Whilst I am taking the Movicol I am fine, but the minute I try to come off and have none for about a week, the pain always comes back. I have had a gastroscopy and that’s all fine and dandy! I am having an ultrasound of my abdomen on 18.9.09, but I think it is a waste of time as the pain is directly between my shoulder blades. I have had numerous massages and there are no trapped nerves. I feel as though I am constantly constipated 24/7!!! When will this ever go away. Surely I cannot be this full day in day out. What can I do next as my GP just does not seem to be interested :(
