Metamucil actually stops me from going. Forms a severe lump and not even gas will pass. Anyone else have that experience (I drink lots of water with it.)

Fiber isn't needed for everyone.  It made me awfully uncomfortable so I stopped using it.  I seem to get plenty of bulk from my diet which is high in fruits and vegetables.  If you think you need fiber you can experiment around with other brands.
