Chronic Chronic Constipation


I was diagnosed with IBS -C Finally! after about 6 visity to my GP and loads of blood tests.
I don't suffer too regularly from pain or discomfort, but i'm becoming more and more anxious about my constipation.
I don't feel I have had a full bowel movement for at least three months now. The BM I have had have been tiny amounts.
I'm always passing bright red blood, and often my BM's are mixed with this bright blood. My GP is aware of my passing blood but says it's nothing to worry about unless it's black, etc - (Typical symptoms of more serious IBD etc)
Is there anyone else out there with such CHRONIC constipation?
I've been prescribed Movicol, have tried my self bulking laxatives, but the only little bit of releif comes from stimulants (in excess, sometimes 25mg bisacodyl will give me a little BM) Any ideas please! before I explode!

I'm at my wits end...............

Re: Chronic Chronic Constipation

Crohn's has been ruled out by blood tests.

I forgot to mention, i've been on tetracyclines, followed by erythromycin for about the last 6 months now. Stopped taking them about two weeks ago.
