| | Pain in abdomen before first bm
I recently changed my second fiber pill of the day to an hour before dinner, and noticed that I was getting bad crampy pain, doubled over kind, before the first morning bm, and then it went away. This went on for a few days and then I switched my fiber pill back to the evening and noticed that the pain did not occur. What causes this? I am so bloated all the time and feel like I am fibered out. I drink over 2 litres of water per day, but eat a lot of wheat floured ingrediants such as cookies, squares, toast. I eat my dinner, usually a big meal, and then I am so bloated from all this. Maybe I need to eat more fruits and vegys? I am constantly experimenting to see what works best. My system usually has 3 bm's by noon, two hours apart. When I don't have the second bm on time, can you believe that I get anxiety over it? I tell myself, my system is not ready to expel it yet, I can't afford to strain. But eating all this fiber, it feels like it is just sitting in the rectum, but as the day goes on, it gets harder, not soft stools such as the morning. I've noticed this question on some posts and wondering can anybody respond as to why the stools get harder as the day goes on?
