Jamie, it would be helpful if you would answer the questions people are asking.  Are you going at all?  If not, how long has it been?  Have you called your doc?
I suffer with IBS C.  After a period of time with C, fiber of any type will not help.  Because you may be "plugged up", the bowel will not be able to move on it's own so throwing more fiber into the colon will only make it harder for it to do it's job.  If it's been many days since you've had a movement, I would suggest you call your doctor for advice on a laxative.  You may need something with a stimulant to help get peristalsis going as well as softening the stool that is already in the bowel.

Please keep your posts limited to one thread. Asking the same question on different threads can be confusing to some members to follow.
