Constipation is when you feel like you haven't gone to the bathroom enough. It can also be painful to go to the bathroom and your stool might be dry. Lots of people think that you have to go to the bathroom every day, but this isn't true.

 

There are no fixed symptoms of constipation, except for people who have a serious problem. For most people, if they have less than three bowel movements in a week, that is considered to be a symptom of constipation. Other common symptoms include having hard and dry stool, straining too much to pass stool, pain when having a bowel.

 

People with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) often have problems with their colon. This can cause them to have constipation and diarrhea, as well as abdominal cramps, gas, and bloating. A physical examination may find things like anal fissures, fistulae, strictures, cancer, and thrombosedhemorrhIn.

 

There are many types of examinations that can be done to figure out what is wrong with you. Blood tests can show if you have a thyroid problem. Abdominal x-rays can show if there is something blocking your intestines. You can also have a barium enema (where they put dye into your rectum), a colon

 

The history of a patient's constipation may give clues to the various symptoms. This may include how long it takes them to go to the toilet, any changes - environmental or psychological - that occurred before the problem started, and what steps they have taken to try and control it, such as using laxatives.

 

Some people adopt different measures or behaviors to help them have bowel movements. People with Constipation can sometimes feel worried or stressed, which makes the condition worse. This is a cycle that often happens.
