Does anyone get this where they are mildly constipated and then the bowels go into overdrive? It happens every week or so to me. This morning it’s only 11am and I have been 4 times since I woke up this morning. It’s not diarrhea, just loose movements. I get an upset tummy too, then the haemorroids start to bleed.
Usually I’d say I’m mildly constipated and I won’t go more than 2 days without a movement. Then there’s a backlog and the bowels need to do some catching up it seems. The GP said it’s constipation with overflow but it’s not exactly that, I don’t get incontinent.
I have increased my daily water intake and eat lots of prunes, doesn’t seem to make much difference.
