I have been diagnosed with "idiopathic chronic constipation of the bowels for young women". Which I was told is "no specific cause for constipation". At the time I had lost 3 stones as I was being sick up to 14 times a day and was severely constipated. This was two years ago. Now I mainly vomit 3 times a month when on my period (I take domperidone for anti sickness prior to my period).
I still have constipation, bloating and stomach cramps almost all the time. I noticed that lactose caused cramps so cut it out of my diet and I remember I had a nut allergy prior to this whole bout of illness.
I have heard that certain foods can cause constipation and I would like to know if there is a suggested avoid and eat list. I take medicine for constipation but I don't want to be reliant on it. I really want to break this cycle and I have a doctor's appointment on Friday.
Any suggestions would be appreciated
