constipation and mucus

I have not had a bowl movement for over a week. I have very stinky gas, I mean bad.  I feel like I'm going to have a bowl movement and it comes out mucus like (clear,orange,brownish)
I fill bloated and crampy.

what is this? should I be worried?

What is your fiber intake like?

Do you have IBS or inflammatory bowel disease?  

If this persists longer, I woudl advise you to make an appointment when a DR because the reason why you have a bowel movement is to get rid of waste in your system.  IF this waste builds up for too long, it could become toxic.

But first try some fiber supplements that you can find in your local store, but I advise you to start slowly!
