HI, this is the first time I have posted on this board...I am hoping to get some advice...

Throughout the last 7 or 8 years I have had problems with my bowels...for years I had though I have constipation..I have had 2 colanoscopys (sorry about the spelling) with no findings at all...I am on pain medication due to my other health issues and know that can cause constipation so I do take miralax often...but it does not help that much..I have taken regular laxitives like ducolax but that causes really bad cramping and sometimes bleeding...

I was taking "colan cleanse" daily but my daughter told me that I should not be taking that on a daily basis because it should only be taken for 14 days....

I have tried "activia" and probiotics...I have also used fiber just seems like something works for awhile then it stops...

The other thing that kinda scares me is that sometimes there is blood...never a lot but drops of it...

I get so bloated that my stomach starts right under my boobs and sticks out like I am pregnant...It does hurt to be bloated like that...

Thank you for listening and any advice anyone can give me would be so appreciated...
