Thanks everyone. So far, I've tired Senna (all versions), Metamucil, Lax-a-day and increasing fibre, etc. and all to no avail. I'll have to ask my doctor for other recommendations. I wonder if that's what the new pain is, on the left hand side...because I'm constipated.
I really appreciate the suggestions and support. I just get so tired when a new pain pops up...it always seems to reinforce to me that nothing has changed for the better.
On a good note though, I have been sleeping better, and have had a LOT less hot flashes and severe sweating since starting the Clonidine, so that's a start!
Wishing everyone a really good day today.
