Problem with Chronic constipation

My colon is also very long. That is the reason it twists, turns and loops, because there is not enough room inside of me. The question seems to be if I was born that way or if all the years of constipation caused it. No way to really know. I have tried numerous probiotics and never saw any real impact.

My understanding is that Reglan helps with emptying stomach contents so is given for nausea. Motegrity increases bowel peristalsis to help move stool through. Miralax draws water into the bowel and yes, it is a cumulative effect.

Has anyone tried external perineal self-acupressure to help stimulate a bowel movement? Any downsides to this technique?
