I have chronic constipation. I’ve been taking miralax. Sometimes it will help for a couple of days. Once in awhile I will have sort of a normal bowel movement or other times it’s just a small amount of feces comes out.
I have very dry mouth and my salivary glands are almost not working at all. I also have Interstitial Cystitis which makes it difficult to eat the right foods because of everything almost irritating my bladder and Citric acid is a no, no. I’m sure I must be deficient in a lot of vitamins and minerals. They say that constipation is one of the side effects of this disease. I have to wear a denture on the top of my mouth which is very uncomfortable do to my very mouth. Can’t chew foods so I use a food processor. Can’t eat foods that cause gas because it gives me terrible pain and sometimes nausea. I have depression and anxiety.
Antidepressants didn’t help me. I need to find a doctor who can work with me but I can’t seem to find one here in New Port Richey, Florida where I live. I also can’t sleep. I need help. Please.
