Does anyone share this situation?? I have been constantly constipated for 6 months now, not much works I've tried it all. Magnesium is all that works and if I dont take milk of mag 2tbsp twice a day I cant go and its only liquid I can pass. If it doesnt work I need to do a mag cit colon cleanse. IM AFRAID IM GOING TO DIE OF KIDNEY FAILURE BEFORE DOCS FIND ROOT CAUSE!! I've had a colonoscopy and it didnt show much, now im having barium xrays and ultra sound in a couple days. I get nausea, cramping, twinges, bloat, gas, fluid builds in in lower right and left abdomen, burping, lower back pain, what feels like a bubble in lower mid left abdomen wgen i lay on right side. It slow build. Please.

You're not alone, been a problem for me as well for many years. Is there anything else unusual: ribbon like stools, very hard clumps, blood/mucus, etc. I had resorted to milk-mag as well but my doctors pulled me off of that and now I use mirilax just about everyday. It helps a little but I can still go for weeks at a time with no joy. I do have an IBD so the inflammation is most of my problem - the stool will still be soft, just have a hard time pushing past the obstruction type of thing.

Forgot to add this - it's been bad enough in the past where I almost made it a full month between BM's, not pleasent as you probably already know. Seems impossible for your body to even be able to do that. Certainly not healthy at all.
