Terrible constipation and cramps.. 👎😬 help?
« on: February 27, 2014, 02:09:24 PM »
Ever since last night after I went to the bathroom to go #2 (tmi?) I had a good amount of light red blood on the toliet paper after I wiped, I've been constipated for a while (maybe a little over a month) but after I went I had this heavy conjested like feeling in my lower abdomen I'm really starting to panick about it since this is the first time and having terrible cramps too.
I've tried laxatives but they don't really help at all I don't drink much water either, the most days i go with out crapping is about 3 sometimes 2.
Sorry if this is tmi.
Anything I can do besides go to the doctor? :fragend005:

Hi M:)

Light red blood is typically from hemorrhoids. Cramping and just feeling 'off', bloating, tight etc., in your belly / bowels can be IBS. IBS is pretty darn common for anxiety peeps. Look it up at Mayo Clinic online. But, do not go googling around and playing Dr. Stop after you read about IBS....you'll get all freaked out if you keep on digging around on the internet:)

Constipation can be part of IBS. Cramping is def part of IBS, in my experience.

Of course, I'm no doc. We all have to have a baseline of health from our Docs. So, if you haven't had a physical / checkup lately, then you need to do so, so you can establish your overall health, which I'm sure I fine:)

Peace and Feel Well:)
