Have you ever been diagnosed with pelvic floor dysfunction? I have a combo of this with stc. Might be something to look at. You can try therapy for it. The only thing that gets me to have bm is coffee/caffeine, stool stimulants, enema or suppository. Sometimes if i drink mag citrate. But will still have all the discomforts, gas, bloating, cramping. Ive tried most of the pills without luck, all the mixes. Though dr thinks miralax twice a day and low fodmap diet are the best.

Thanks for these tips, @januaryjane.

I believe from what you've mentioned elsewhere on Connect you are wondering about the possibility you could have Parkinson's or something else neurological? Is that correct?

Hi January Jane. WOW! I am blown away by your post. Everything you say you experience with the constipation and the things you do to cope with it are dead on with me. As I say, ditto, ditto, ditto and ditto again. Yes, I was just recently diagnosed with pelvic floor dysfunction and am getting set up to have the therapy. Both my doctor and therapy nurse say I am a really good candidate. I am willing to try anything. Thanks again for sharing your experience.
