General Surgeon 's  Response
You are suffering with Constipation.
Constipation is a symptom with many causes. These causes are of two types: obstructed defecation and colonic slow transit (or hypomobility). About 50% of patients evaluated for constipation at tertiary referral hospitals have obstructed defecation.This type of constipation has mechanical and functional causes. Causes of colonic slow transit constipation include diet, hormonal disorders such as hypothyroidism, side effects of medications, and rarely heavy metal toxicity.
Because constipation is a symptom, not a disease, effective treatment of constipation may require first determining the cause.
Please take plenty of liquids,high fiber diet,green leafy vegetables and observe for few days.
If there is no response,Consult your doctor and search for any particular cause.
Wish you good health
