I'm usually over on the GERD board but I'm hoping someone can help me out here.

I haven't have a bowel movement in a while. At first I thought I was constipated and took fibre supplements, prunes but that didn't help. After 5 days I used a Fleet enema which I thought would clear the 'blockage' if I was blocked. But since then, I still haven't had a bowel movement. And the strange thing is that I don't even feel uncomfortable. It's like I've lost the urge and just no longer have to go. I have no pain and don't feel any different from normal.

I did not change my diet, nor was I under any abnormal amount of stress.

Can this be IBS? How come I'm not feeling anything?

I would check with my doctor (GI if you have one). Any change like that can be very important to let you dr know about cause it could be something more serious like a blockage or it could be nothing at all.. Call you dr asap and let them make the call on what to do..
