Re: Bad Pain and alternating between...

Hi Harry.

Thanks for answering my post! Well, I haven't heard about the magnesium supplements, so I need to try them. I know I've had Metamucil before, and it does keep me regular, yet if I continue taking them say every day, I end up w/ diareaha quite often. While it does reduce the straining, as you suggested, it seems that the stools become too loose after some time.

It's just so frustrating, as I've had to avoid lots of foods lately.....Dairy seems to do OK w. me, but certain foods cause pain in the stomach/intestine area, where it connects to the intestine. Not sure what the heck that could be caused by!! Anyway, thanks the info I may just try the magnesium.
