For the past couple months I have had really bad constipation. I eat a lot of fiber to get more regular but it doesn't seem to help much. I have bowel movement almost everyday but I don't get very much out and it feels like I always have to go even after I have just gone, like I am not getting it all out. I even gave my self an enema and I still had to force a lot of it out. My stool sizes are smaller in diameter too. I have also had really bad gas, that smells really bad. I have a hard time sitting in class for an hour holding it in because it causes really bad cramps and I feel like I will explode. When I do have a bowel movement there is mucus in the stools and when I wipe there is mucus all over the toilet paper. I often feel weak and tired. I have also been dealing with depression and I am currently taking an anti depressant, but it doesn't say constipation is a side effect. The antidepressant doesn't seem to help very much either, I still feel depressed. I get really bad headaches that won't go away with tylenol or ibuprofen. Another thing is if I don't eat for a 3 to 4 hours I get headaches and really shaky and anxious and I can't think very clearly but as soon as I eat I feel fine after just a few minutes.
I talked to my doctor about my symptoms but he kind of just brushed them off and gave me a different antidepressant. So I am not sure what to do. I am wondering if there is an underlying physical condition that could be causing my depression because meds and therapy don't seem to be helping.
Any advice would be helpful.
