Hey guys, this is my first post. But lemme jump right into it.
So for all of you to know, I'm going to be twenty soon. But I have a huge problem.
I can't poop.
I mean, I can, but I don't for days. It's been that way ALL my life, and I don't know why!
Every three-five days I'll get a sudden urge to go to the bathroom really badly, but don't. It will usually be at that five day mark that THEN I use the bathroom. And by then my bowel movements are very large, painful, and I have to cut it up to make it fit down the toilet. This whole thing also makes me a gassy person. It's really bad, and even though nobody I know knows what I go through, I'm embarrassed of myself for this. And then for it to take three days to need to go again? I've never had a regular BM cycle, but I'm pretty sure I'm suppose to poo every day, right? So why can't I??
Don't know if this stuff will help, but if you need any background/medical info on me to help give advice, here it is:
-taking birth control, multivitamin, and Prevacid.
-blood work reveals high cholesterol, high triglycerides
-also a benign liver disease (bilirubin going through my digestive track, so no "harm")
-ALWAYS low blood pressure (about 70/106ish every time), but my heart rate is ALWAYS between 90-100
-have female-inherited fibrocyctosis. don't think that's too relevant though. :\
-find myself very thirsty regularly, but don't know how thirsty is abnormal
-also have a type of acid reflux
Thanks for the help guys. I'm so embarrassed. It means a lot.
