    Hi, I had to go to the doctors as it had got to so painful to and they prescribed movicol which really does work. It's a powder that you desolve in water and works pretty quickly. It's definately worth the the trip to your GP for it. Hope you feel better soon.

    Oh you poor thing - i was blocked up from the first week as prior to CD I was only going 3 times a week so I used a supository (sp?) for the first time and it was great - you dont get all the bad tummy pains you can get with laxatives and it worked in 10 mins!!! the best bit was that after you go then it stops - its not a constant running to the loo for hours type of process. I will be using them again until I get more real food into my system.

    All the best.

    Movicol can be bought at the pharmacy as well (although it is about £11 for 30 sachets!!) Bought some last week and it works wonders!

    This was one of the reasons I had to stop CD earlier in the year. It's not nice at all.

    I found that sparkling water helps me, so it might be worth a try. This time round I am having a 1.5 litre bottle every day with the water flavouring.

    hi, its not nice, i was so bad a while back i had senna, movicol, supositories, and dulcoease, lol all at once.
    to be honest taking 1 or 2 movicol every few days helps. there is a fibre from cdc but i just didnt get on with it. suppositories certainly move fast, but you need to hold it in for at least 15mins to melt (very difficult lol) i find the choc tetras help to, i try and have 1 a day now and its helping, although this morning was difficult.
    some other tips that have helped me are lean back on the toilet with your knees together, or raise your knees by using a little step to but your feet on. then leean back, to each side and forward, back again and this should also help.
    i really understand how bad it can get, the worst time for me i was on the loo over an hour in tears and feeling like i was going to pass out. and spent the whole day on and off the loo in pain.
    i hope its sorted now, and hope these tips help anyone else in the future xxx

    done them all - now going to suceed with LL
    constipation is terrible, unless you have had it you can not appreciate the pain, I had terrible problems due to my medication, I used to go every day, it got so bad it would be once a week, medical tips include
    extra fluids as the bowel needs fluid to soften the stools, abdominal massage - this is exciting the colon! lay on the bed raise the knees a little with the right hand flat on the tummy starting from just below the rib cage knead your tummy in a clockwise motion, as if you were kneading bread, you can press quite firmly, after about 6 or 7 times around you should feel the need to go, the positional things are true aswell if you think about it, before toilets were invented it was natural to squat, obviously you cant squat on a toilet so lifting the feet up on a small footstool or leaning forwards and help as it is positional to help the stools move in the bowel
    hope this helps
