Gas But Constipated

Gas But Constipated

I used to have diarrhea quite often, but now I am almost always constipated. I have no idea how to deal with it. I eat 25g + of fibre each day and take Align. I have started taking Iberogast as I also have reflux issues, but nothing is working. I also have a lot of gas and get very bloated, pretty much all the time...
Restoralax does work, but often times too well and then I’m going multiple times a day!
Any ideas of how to fix this???? I would really appreciate any input!!

Has Anyone Else Tried The Low-FODMAP Diet For IBS-C (NOT IBS-D)? If So, How Did It Go For You??

Has Anyone Else Tried The Low-FODMAP Diet For IBS-C (NOT IBS-D)? If So, How Did It Go For You??

The diet seems to be really geared towards IBS-D especially from what I can tell. I know when I first tried doing it it helped the bloating, but made everything else worse, because I was following all the low fiber (and often pretty heavy) recipes on Pinterest... not great for constipation or someone whose gut is triggered by heavy foods. Combining the low-FODMAP diet (modified with what I know I can handle based on the… read more
