My symptoms are constant constipation and nausea after eating for at least 1/2 hour.. I am not dehydrated. I drink a ton of water, eat fruits, vegi's & fiber and excersise a lot. All of a sudden, at the age age of 34, I have chronic constipation. Laxitives and stool softeners are not working. Should I get a colonscopy? Do you know anyone who this has happened to? What was it? I have had 2 x rays, the Dr. says you have constipation and I don't think it is anything more. O.K. Is it possible he could be wrong? It is so unusual it will not go away on double doses of Miralax and now double doses of milk of magnesia. It has been 6 weeks of this and I do not want to deal with it forever! help-this is terrible!Answer Question

You should have a colonscopy. I have crohn's disease and this is a symptom. My intestines were so narrow that eating things like veggies, fruits and fiber were the worse things I could do. It could be allot of different things, that's why you should have a colonoscopy. Your bowels could be inflamed if you had an obstruction you probably wouldn't be typing a question right now. You need to go to a gastroenterologist.
