Re: Bowel movement issue
It sounds like you might need to increase your fiber and water consumption, constipation may be your problem. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains and may be a fiber supplement such as Metamucil or Citrucel might help, but, still I would highly recommend getting it checked out by your doctor since you had cramping and bleeding, just to rule out anything more serious. You may have aggravated hemmorhoids from all that straining. I believe if you had an anal fissure, you would know because the pain is excruciating!! Please try to avoid all straining, it can lead to hemmorhoids, anal fissure and rectal prolapse, not good!
Good luck to you and let us know how you're doing.
