Hi there I'm a newbie here. My son has had bowel moment issues since he was round 1, he is now 5 and over time they are not getting better, they are getting worse. We've been on movicol since he was 1 also. He used to have one sachet a day which pretty much kept him regular although he never had the right type of stool. Since around December he has been suffering with major bloating (like huge). We've been docs lots of times since December about it. They say he has chronic constipation although his belly is nice and soft and that he's full of wind. He can't get the wind out. He is pooing more regular but doesn't manage everyday though he does most days.
But the bloating just won't go away. The doctor won't seem to take me seriously about it. I'm really concerned. He's been sick some days too as he just seems so full. We've cut dairy for two weeks hasn't made any difference now also cutting gluten and no difference. The docs won't refer us to a peadiatrian or a gastrointestinal doctor and I really feel something isn't right. I don't know what else to do for him. We go back again and again and just get sent away.
