TMI TMI But I'm too embarrassed to go to the ER

I'm super constipated. I strain, and push and push and push. And nothing. I keep having to go but if I'm lucky I get a very small piece out. I DONT want to go to the ER.

Will a suppository help? The stool is too hard to push out, not that I can't get a BM. I need something to soften the stool so I can go.

I don't think a lax would help being that the bm is already there it's just too hard to push out

Quoting Dinimon: Coffee? Laxative?

Miralax. It's the BEST stuff for constipation! It makes the stool slippery (that's the only way I know how to explain it). I was actually at the ER for a kidney stone and had an MRI or CT scan done and the dr said "well, you definitely passed a kidney stone but that's not your issue now." I was so scared. Then he said "you are so constipated I'm not sure how you aren't complaining about that!" Lol

He recommended Miralax and OMG it worked and I felt so much better!! I'm sure to keep that stuff on hand all the time!!

Whatever you do, stop straining, you are going to hurt yourself.
