doctor told me to start using stool softeners or take a fiber supplement edveryday if i continue to have constipation problems. i sometimes can go 2 to 3 days without having a BM. which can be quite painful at times, so i got fiber choice which says to take 2 tablets a day(4grams) which doesnt seem like a lot. i mean were suppose to get like 20-30 grams of fiber a day right? and this is only 4? but i guess ill take 2 in the morning and we will see if it helps..
ive also had horrible acid indigestion the past 2 weeks so im hoping the antacids will help. i tried baking soda in water (DH's idea) last night but it didnt seem to work at all and tasted gross so just ended up making me feel worse lol. so i will probably take 2 like an hour before bed and see if it helps, since lying down with acid and indigestion is very annoying, and keeps me up.

i am going through the same thing. the heartburn is killing me. i take tums or rolaids but it doesnt really work, i am just going insane, cant take it anymore and the acid makes me burp and then makes me nauseated!
