I`ve had IBS for years and recently it has been mainly constipation type - I go several times every day but have to strain a lot and always feel I haven`t finished. I decided to try Movicol - just one sachet at night. The first day after doing this I felt better than for ages - only went to the loo twice and felt more comfortable - so I took another the following night - big mistake. That was last night and I`ve been to the loo 10 times today and had bad stomach ache. Hopefully it will calm down again but I don`t know whether to give up on the movicol - or try just every other night - or maybe just half a sachet. I have also thought about Fybogel - haven`t tried that lately and the last time I did I was very stressed which was making the IBS very erratic
Please don`t give me any other suggestions for sorting out the constipation - I`ve tried everything!
