Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can i help you
User :   I'm 16. Two nights ago, I went to the local urgent care. They did a x-ray and said I was very constipated. I was in a lot of pain. I drank some magnesium citrate and I had many bowel movements that night and the following morning. Since then, I have not had a bowel movement in 2 days. I haven't felt constipated, I just feel like I do not have to have a bowel movement. Is this normal?
