Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to Health Care Magic.

Thanks for writing.

I am Dr.Muhammad Ahmad. I have read your question completely, i understand your concern and will try to help you in best way possible.

Here are a few suggestions which might help you.

1) Drink loads of water.
2) Use ample fibre..you can take fibre supplements for that.
3) You can use simple laxatives like lactulose or cremaffen.
4) If this didnt work i would suggest my patients tonuse sodium picosulfate.
5) The last resort is an enema that in 90% of the cases works.

If no method works then it is suggested for you to contact doctor as soon as possible.

I would also suggest you to avoid smoking, fats, meat coffee etc.




I hope this answered your question, a
if you have more please feel free to ask.

Regrads.

Hi, for a while now I have been getting dizzy and light headed when I stand up. I ve also been extremely tired to the point where I feel like I can t do anything. My GP tested my thyroid and my iron levels and they were fine but i m still getting these symptoms only now for the last few days I have been extremely thirsty, especially in the evening where I can drink 5 or 6 large glasses of water in the space of 2 hours. I am thinking perhaps I should go back to my GP for more tests I also suffer from constipation and stabbing , almost crippling, stomach pains due to this.
