I was diagnosed with fibro in March. Have had a few years of debilitating pain in various guises and have also suffered terrribly with my bowels. I have irritable bowel so discomfort has become the norm and also have a rectocele which is very unpleasant. This basically means my bowel wall is weak and often balloons into my bladder area which means I have to physically push it back again.
I have managed this pretty well really but lately I have been sosososoos bad - absolute agony. I am almost a week at a time without going and the pain when I do go is excruciating - sends the pain and numbness right down my legs and I feel sick and want to pass out.
I have been taking two laxatives every evening - aloe ones that are very natural and usually fantastic but it is not working.
Any ideas and does anybody else with fibro suffer like this with their bowels - don't want to go to the doc in case he changes my pain medication which is currently working reasonably well and is enabling to keep working
