I wonder if anyone can help me. On the whole my digestion seems pretty normal and routined but I always have trouble with constipation and then diarrhea.
We go camping for our holidays and it seems like the change in routine for eating and using public toilets causes me to get constipation. I am then unable to go to the toilet for 3 to 4 days (I usually go once a day) and then when I do go I get really bad diarrhea for a day or two. This happens everytime we go away. We've got our summer holiday coming up next weekend and I don't want to have the same problems again. I bought some senna tablets and took one the other night when I was constipated but the following day I had awful diarrhea and painful stomach cramps - I'd originally thought it may be a good idea to take these at the beginning of my holiday but now there's no chance.
I just wondered if anyone had any tips on what to do about this. Is there any changes I could make to my diet in the next week to help? Anything I could try on holiday?
It's worrying me as it's so uncomfortable and a real inconvenience.
