    Know how you feel it is horrible!! Those strawberries should do the trick..I normally buy either strawberries/raspberries/blackberries and each loads and that does the trick!! Stay away from cereals/bread/stodgy stuff and drink as much water as you can to soften things up!!

    I don't reckon you would be able to do it hard enough on yourself...

    I take senokot when constipated or try prune juice?

    A cup of boiled water and slices of lemon does the trick for me, as does a cup of tea!

    Things will right themselves though, I eat all the right foods, always have my five a day and sometimes don't go for a couple of days. I feel crappy then, but it does sort itself out.

    I would also love one of those massages, much better idea than a colonic!!!

    Poor you! It's horrid isn't it.

    Grapefruit works for me. And taking a long walk or a run. Just helps things move around down there.

    YES! You can do the abdominal massage on yourself. I googled it the other week. I'll see if I can find the link again. Basically you start on the bottom right corner and massage in small circles, pressing firmly, going round up to under your ribs, accross the top and down to the left...

    Found this article on massaging yourself to relieve constipation......I think it is for more long term solution than immediate, but it's cheaper than paying someone else to do it!
