Dear T,
From the history given by you, i am of the opinion that you are suffering from HABITUAL CONSTIPATION. To get an immediate relief take Lactulose Solution ( DUPHALAC) 30ml at bed time and you will get relieved within 8 hours . To prevent getting trouble further , change your food habits. Take plenty of fibres in food, raw vegetable salads and greens along with frequent intake of water. Try to have some mild exercises or have brisk walk daily......................All the Best
