Ive got a constipation question. For the past month, my problem has been diarrhea. Now its back to constipation!! UGHH. So now im freakin out about it. (I have kinda bad anxiety problems, I tend to get nervous every time I get a pain in my intestine because irrationally I think im getting sick!! Im terrified of vomiting. Theres my other main issue... sad ) it normal when your constipated to be very distended and if you press on your intestinal area, it feels hard and hurts?  I also have really bad gas pains and a little bit of stomach discomfort..not really pain so much, just it kinda feels weird.  Is stomach discomfort a side effect of constipation as well? I need help readjusting..
oh, and btw, I just ate some(around 7..i went NUTS..ugh im a dummy sometimes ahhh!) of those  peanut butter cookies with the hersheys kisses in the center...def not a good idea..major stomachache and cramping! nono not good to eat! haha

Distention of your stomach is a sign of gas which is common with constipation. Maybe try some Gas-X to release the trapped gas (be prepared :) Also you can typically feel the gas moving around in your colon which can also cause discomfort.
I am on the other side of the fence. I went back to D after being IBS-C for a long time. I have to agree about the adjustment. Sometimes we forget how to deal with the symptoms.

Peanut butter!!??!! Definitely one of my weaknesses :)
