Sorry, a rant and also a request for your advice. redface
 
I've just moved to a new flat, and have suffered what is possibly the worst bout of constipation I've had so far which has also continued for 3 days. (It's unusual for me. My ibs goes between C and D but it's more normal to be D under stress)
 
The first day I struggled with it, thought it was rather severe but would pass. The second day my stomach and bottom seized up in painful spasm, and I spent 3 hours squatting because it was too painful to move or get up from that position. It even hurt to try and pass anything, and nothing moved or came out. Only small hard stones of matter came out hours later. I had to do some undignified things to even get those out, and I have worsened my haemmorhoids from constant straining.
 
Today I'm still in discomfort but can now walk. However I'm still straining to pass pebbles. I've been to the chemist for H cream and Buscopan, but was too afraid to use the senna laxatives as I didn't want diarrhoea behind a constipation blockage. I don't want an enema either.  I've been eating fruit puree and trying to increase my woeful fluid intake, but are there any favoured techniques you have for dealing with severe constipation?
 
Thank you  blush

tiedinknots, try Mirilax it usually works well and has no taste ...  You just mix it with water and its a over the counter fix....drink at least 3 glass a day I hope it helps you...L

Luckily it's starting to ease naturally now, but what was that? 4/5 days? And thank you!
