Sick and tired of being constipated and bloated..

Hi everyone,

I've been constipated, bloated, and have had lots of gas for awhile now. My gastro doctor gave me a med to try and did not do anything at all. I've tried various over the counter items and still no luck. I've been constipated before, but I just took a laxative and all was well after a couple of days.

The reason I am constipated is b/c of the medication that I take. I have gone a little bit here and there, but I have to really strain to get anything out, which I know is not good for you either.

Also, I am so bloated I look pregnant and along with this my chest feels tight and my breathing gets a tight feeling as well.

I called my gastro doc today, hopefully I'll get a call back tomorrow. But, has anyone had the tight chest issue with the bloating--it is very frustrating and sometimes scary.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sherrie

Have you tried Miralax? That stuff worked wonders for me.

Hi Miss Lynn,

Actually I'm trying Miralax right now and it's not working yet. My gastro doctor said I can take it as much during the day as I want to.
How long did it take for you to get relief from taking Miralax? Do you take it a certain time of day?

Thanks,
Sherrie

For constipation try magnesium carbonate. Works like magic!

Also constipation is a sure sign of dehydration at some level so drink up.

I'd also lay off of dairy for a little because that "binds" you up. Absorb Aid enzymes work really good in combo with this.

Farm Girl, I'm curious as to know how you were able to relieve yourself of the lyme? That's huge it's not easy to overcome. I once had alot of the same symptoms you had as well with breathing and tight stomach.
