constipation without pain just discomfort

i have been having bowel problems for several months now. i am 49 years old and i feel full and bloated all of the time. If i have a bowel movement i still feel like i did not finish because it isnt much. I have tried laxatives, miralax , etc. and taking fiber. Nothing works. I am miserable, my clothes don't fit either. I am so tired of this. My stomach looks like i am pregnant.

Try taking Peri-Colace 3 tablets each night with 2 ducolax tabs to start until going then stop the ducolax and  continue the pericolace but decrease to 2 tablets nightly.  

If you have occasional constipation after that, add 1 more pericolace- (to again make 3 tabs) and 2 ducolax tablets only on the nights extra help is needed.  

The generic of these works just fine.  Walmart has an equate version of both.

I Hope This Helps.    Have A Nice Day!!

Constipation and the feeling you have mentioned,indicates,you may be having piles and/or ulcers problem.Please don't ignore it.These symptoms/habits sometimes indicate future heart problems(especially if your parents had any heart ailment.)

Eat easily digestible food.
Consult a doctor.

Take care !
