I have IBS.

Lately my diet has been terrible resulting in constipation,

I have been eating dried prunes and taking miralax.

I have horrible gas that smells so bad (sry TMI)

I tried to go tonight but barely anything came out.

I am desperately needing relief. Is this dangerous?

Hi! Star 13,
I also have IBS.  I have my constipation under control by taking the natural laxative Cascara sagrada every 2 or 3 days when necessary.  This available at the health food store.  Good luck!

I posted to the other thread, but when you say you haven't gone for two weeks do you mean at all?

Have you ever had a sitz marker test?
