OMG! I've been constipated on and off for the last 6 months. IDK what to do.
In July I went to the emergency room and had to get an enema. I got all 3 ways done.
I was so friggin bloated at the time when I went to the emergency room reception, the lady asked me if I was in labour. I told her I wasn't pregnant...she looked shocked.
Anyway, the emergency room doctor had access to an xray I did the week before for my general doctor. He basically said I was full of poop. His words. I was pissed my general doctor didn't get a hold of me.
I've been suffering for months on and off. At one point it cleared up. Then it came back.
My general doctor was monitoring me weekly then it went to monthly. AT one point it cleared up but now it's back again.
I mean I look friggin pregnant and I can't get into my jeans and I feel horrible because I have this weight/bloat wherever I go.
I'm tired of taking Restoralax, fiber, psyillium husks, prune juice and water.
So, tomorrow once again I have to go to a medi clinic.
My general doctor told me to go to emergency if I throw up. I've come close but haven't thrown up yet. Plus when I eat food, I can't eat a full meal because of the bloat I can only eat half of what I use too, I think because I'm so bloated. My DR trying to make an appointment with the specialist but it could take me up to a year before I get in. Just the way the Canadian health care system works.
I have to admit when I cleared up I didn't keep taking the Restoralax, psyillium husks and prune juice.
I give up. I'm tired of this misery. I just want to go to the bathroom like a normal person.
When I cleared up I couldn't figure out why I got better except the only difference is that I started swimming and going to the gym. So now I've headed back to the gym. But I think I have Atlete's foot from the pool.
I just can't win.
So anyone have advice????? How do I survive this???
I also thought I had a yeast infection so I took some yeast infection pills and after that I noticed I bloated again. I wonder what's going on . I forgot to add I'm also taking probiotics and yogurt. Activia yogurt too seems to help.
I'm tired of being uncomfortable, bloated. I'm tired.
