I recently had an excerbation of my MS, which I thought was my IBS....the two share very similar symptoms, including constipation...it wasn't until I realized that I still had an appetite, it was not the IBS... when its IBS, either my stomach is on fire or I'm just belching, burping and farting

I was doing none of that, but I was constipated like a duck, and the usual lax were not working...my GP had mentioned stimulent drugs...

then I found a stool sofener with sennosides, a relatively mild, natural stimulent laxitive..
and it works very well, it really cleans me out...the first days it just got everything out, I mean, I felt empty....

now I just need to figure out if my slowing digestive will will speed up when the MS improves or not. yeah
It seemed like a good idea at the time

You know what I found that really helped my constipation issues? It is totally natural--prunes. I ate a handful of prunes and within hours I had a BM. So, now when I have that problem I just eat a handful of prunes and it takes care of it.
