My name is john boatner and I am a 21 year old male. I
have been battling constipation problems for 2-3 years now. It all started with
a severe bout of constipation over the summer several years ago. Since that
have been plagued by a unique problem. I basically found using my finger
and manually stimulating my anus allowed me to have, and initiate a bowel
movement in the morning. I have been doing this for about 2 years now because
whenever I do not use my finger I cannot go. As the day goes on I do not have
urge to move my bowels again and if I try to do it myself I notice my anus and
rectume are like a vice! I can also only squeeze out nasty mucus. I am on the
toilet every morning for at east an hour and am becoming severely depressed. I
use to go 2-3 times a day in high school, but I feel like as if I have lost my
natural urge to go (maybe my peristalsis has become weak).
Did the chia seeds help give you that natural urge back? Are they sti working for you an do you still go multiple times a day with them? Lastly, do you think that they have actually helped with pooping itself, or are they just making more to poop?
