My problem had always been D a couple times a week and now since I have been Dx'd I've been getting C. Not sure if it's cuz I cut back on fiber (and eating in general) or what. But now my problem with the C is I seem to get so backed up that it effects my breathing. I have asthma and when I'm really backed up, I have a hard time catching a full breath. I've also had a lump in my throat at times. I'm not sure that my doc fully believes me but we're trying to deal with it. I just bought some Metamucil and some stool softeners.
Oh, and some days I'll have C with D right behind it waiting. That's the worst pain when the C has to come out before the D can. I can't believe I'm talking about this!!
