Are you on any medication? Sometimes painkillers like codeine can cause severe constipation.

If not you should see your doctor and maybe change your diet to help your bowels. x

Go get urself lactulose from doc or pharmacy. It's much more gentle on the stomach and really helps soften ur stools. Constipation is the worst. U must take it daily tho while ur taking medication that can constipate you. Hope this helps xx

I agree, sena didnt work for me when I needed it. Lactulose worked wonders within 1-2 days

Lots of fresh fruit and veg, fruit juice, oh and prunes (yuk) xx

You need to try something from the bottom end too if you are really impacted. You can buy glycerine suppositries over the counter, but you must get chcked out by gp especially if feeling light headed and to change your oral laxatives. Plus drink lots and lots of water xxx
