I'm seventeen years old and I was diagnosed with Crohn's August 2011, I'm on Pentasa for my Crohn's. I am also on Zoloft, Prilosec, Strattera, Vitamin D, and Blood Nutrients.
I have been constipated for a almost a week and a half, I was able to pass a small BM yesterday, but not enough to provide me with relief. I had taken Miralax five days ago, but it has not helped me at all. Whenever I eat I feel so much discomfort, I get gassy, and I feel like I'm filled into my throat and I just am miserable. This has been keeping me up at night and distracting me in school. I need answers, should I just call my GI?
I am terrified of needing to do the Barium prep or any kind of prep...
I have bloating and fullness all the time when I eat. You need to take the Miralax every day , I take it twice a day and also take Digestive Advantage for Constipation. This helps. Don't be afraid of the Barium it's nothing.
