Alcohol and Constipation?'s

badincited posted:
Been dealing with constipation for awhile now after trying all sorts of different things and pretty much narrowed it down to alcohol. Anytime I drink more than 2 drinks I become constipated I can feel it in my lower left side as soon as I wake up the next morning. This happens even if I drink a few bottles a water before consuming alcohol. My mother had ulcerative colitis and had to have her intestines removed when she was younger. I know alcohol dehydrates you but this seems a little extreme almost feel like my intestines get inflamed or something. Any ideas?
