1 week into wheat free, and it has happened again, yes constipation, no not your normal constipation but the one that comes from medication. This has happened every time I have tried low carb as well.
For the last 2 - 3 months, I have been able to keep the constipation at a bearable level, by nowhere normal but bearable. Now that I have removed wheat from my food, which means I am getting less whole grains, the constipation has reared its ugly head again. Though I have increased my vege intake etc, this does not do sweet 'F' all. I don't think I could eat any more fruit if I tried, what I eat is enough to put any normal person constantly on the loo.
I am and have tried everything out there, natural as well as stuff from the doctor, and everything in-between. I have haemorrhoids and dread going to the toilet, I take in my iPhone and listen to soothing music and can sit there in tears for up to an hour at times and can be many times a day just hoping and praying something will happen. It is so painful, recently I had found a semi happy place when it came to BM's, certainly not regular, but it was ok for me. But since I have started the wheat free, obviously the whole grains etc I was getting in the bread etc I was eating, was enough to ease some of the pain, but now again it has got to the point where it is unbearable. I cannot continue like this, I will end up in hospital to get a clean out, which I certainly do not want.
So what do I do?. If you have any suggestions please leave a message, and I will come back and answer on the blog :).
If I don't go within the next 24 hours, I think I might try adding the wheat back in and see what happens, unless somebody can come with something I have not tried. I have tried and walked more as I know this helps, I also had tried drinking heaps of water but that did not help either, I really am at my whits end.......
I have tried or currently on: (will add to it as I remember)
