Yes, your pain in lower abdomen could be due to chronic constipation
, but there could be other issues as well such as a urinary tract
stone or infection, neither of which should be ignored till insurance takes effect. Do get checked up by a physician who will examine for the site of pain and its nature. You will probably benefit from getting a few basic tests like US scan, a complete urine examination.
A diet of high fibre is good, but if you continue to bleed per rectum
, an examination by a surgeon / physician is advisable to ensure a more serious issue is not missed. We have found Isapgol husk to be useful when diluted with water and taken at bedtime. I think it is available as an over-the-counter drug in most pharmacies. Lactulose
syrup about 20-30ml ( one ounce) at bedtime will also be of help. Plenty of water intake at bedtime and in the mornings soon after waking up will also be of help. maintain regular food timings.
Do get back if you continue to experience trouble.
