I am 16 and I had have constipation for over a year. Before that I had alternating constipation and diarrea. I got a signoscopy done and I think a colonoscopy too and all the doctor said he saw was grapefruit sized balls of stool. So I have been taking Miralax every day for a couple months now and it is not really working. It feels like I have to go to the bathroom and can not go and when I do go I only go a little bit. It even hurts to try to go. I am in a lot of pain right now, mostly on my lower left side but a bit on my right side. I was diagnosed with dysautonomia in June because I get dizzy/lightheaded when I stand, get blurred vision, have joint and muscle pain, get nauseous, and get bad headaches. No doctor seems to really think anything of me having chronic constipation. Please help me figure out what is wrong.
