In dyer need of help

If someone reading this would please help because for the last week and five days I’ve had no bm appart from water which my doctor has said is overflow. For the past two days my meds have been 8 laxido, 2 mebeverine, 2 deflectine and 2 sennacots. I’ve had suppositories but they did not work. I feel the need to go constantly and recently it’s water and just water. I seem to be going round and round in circles and every time I go to doctors it always embarrassing. Don’t get me wrong I’ve been twice the past week and they just say the same. It’s like they do not understand how uncomfortable it is any ideas as to what it could be I have ibs but a bit worried appart from that. And how to get rid

I think you should make an appointment with a gastroenterologist as soon as possible. Explain the situation and hopefully they will give you an emergency appt.

Hi Meg8103,

I can feel and understand how unconfortable your problems because my husband has the same as you . We went to see the doctors/nurses each time but we still not have a lots of luck about it. they have given differents meds but it does still not work and he did try a lot of things by himself. He used to take 2 Laxido+ sennacots it works for him (from time to times).

If you had taken all of these meds and still doesn't work can you try to go to the walking centre if you are in uk or E&A to see what they can do for it.

Good luck!


To be honest I’m even starting to question if I’m constipated because of the amount of water coming out. So I won’t go to a and e because I don’t want to waste time. I’ve rang my doctors and demanded an enema to be prescribed. Going to see if they do and I’ll go from there. Thank youu xx


Laxido increases the water content of stools. So could be 8 would make them watery maybe? Talk to your GP best advice. If you are not able to eat tell them that too and if you are in any pain.


I was diagnosed with IBS 50 years ago at the age of 14, and it's been a constant companion, on and off, ever since. My GP recently prescribed macrogol for the constipation, and I found it worked after about two days, but was best not taken every day.

I've now started on the low-FODMAP diet and am hoping for good results. Apparently it's effective in 3 out of 4 sufferers. If it does work, I shall then be able to identify which types of food trigger an attack.
