Hi group.I was just curious if anyone has been diagnosed with ci or pelvic floor dysfunction. I have a sitz marker test coming up plus a defo. My symptoms are strange.since I was 20 years old I having had normal bm. I used to go seven days with non then on day 8 would take laxatives to get relief.I do this for years.since then I started a training my bowels to empty by eating at the same time everyday drinking gallons o water a day taking magnesium supplems and plenty of stool softers and fiber supplement s. I wake up every morning at 7 drink a gallon of water then coffee then lay on my left side and do deep breaths.after about
a hour of that I attempt a bm and usually nothing.then I go eat a light breakfast drink another gallon more coffee lay on my side and after awhile I'll get up attempt a bm and get very small small amount .then I will repeat this process at least four times over the course of four hours.I usually get one small bm out of it.the thing is if I don't do this every morning then I will never get a bm .I just never feel one.could this possibly be colonic inertia? Or pfd? Oh and I have to strain just to get gas out all the time which usually gets trapped. thanks group any thoughts.
