Re: What is going on with me!?
Whatever you do, please do not strain! This can lead to hemmoroids, anal fissures or Rectal Prolapse, all very painful!! You may want to see a Gastroenterologist or a Colon/Rectal Specialist, most PCP's are not very helpful dealing with bowel disorders. Fiber supplements, such as Metamucil or Citrucel do work, and they are not harsh and habit forming as laxatives can be, but you do have to drink lots of water (64 oz) along with a diet high in both soluable and insoluable fiber. I would suggest seeing a specialist. I wish you good luck and health.
