poor you. Sounds like a trip to the gp is probably a good option.

Peppermint water is good for trapped wind. Pains could be due to chronic constipation as well as trapped wind so best get it sorted asap.

My brother used to lie on his front with his arms stretched out in front of him like superman flying and he used to get me to push hard on his lower back with my feet! Worked like a charm x

Get some lactulose (stool softener) as well as a laxative hon (senna, movicol) as you will need both to get rid of the current "blockage".

mint is fab for windy pains.

hi all sorry to revive an old thread but help! ok so the wind went over the course of two days thank god!

but the other prob still remains!!! aarghhh i swear its over a week........ so far i have always been able to rely in dulcolax, i mean it does give me cramos before and can have me up in the night but i can deal wwith that as it sorts the problem...........

only it isnt!! i took it two days running n nothing had a day break n took it three days running this cannot be good!

any advice greatfully received somebody has mention lactulose thats never done any good for me on its own although should i be taking that with the dulcolax.... somethings gotta give before i blow :)

oh no :( I would try movicol , take 2-3 sachets and should get you moving , its one of the gentlest but effective laxatives , it is a very effective stool softener and can also be used for impaction . If you have a problem the 'other end' it may be worth trying glyceryn suppositories to help it out that end
hope you get sorted , its aweful
 
#12
Lactulose won't stimulate you to go as it is only as softener hon.
 
#13
Thanks guys I'm so clueless when it comes to the 'medicine' side of things! Il give movicol a go then here's hoping!

I swear by Movicol too, is fantastic. Might take a few days to work properly though but don't give up hope. I take one sachet morning and evening until I start going. Works every time.

Might be a good idea to see GP and get it prescribed. Is quite expensive to buy over the counter

Ahhh the joys of the NHS.. .would cost me €50 just to see the GP!
 
#16
i didn't know you had to pay gg! i nearly had a for at paying out £7 odd for a script the other day!
 
#17
Yup.... we have no NHS over here and private insurance doesn't even cover basic GP care.

It's usually around €50 for the initial consultation and if you have to go back for a review it drops by €5-10 but you have to book the review at the time or else it's classed as another "initial" usually.

Meds are also really expensive.. I pay €90 a month for my anti-depressants but now have a card so that if I have to get any other prescription meds on top that month the max I pay is €120
