Hi...i have hypothyroid disorder and have chronic, bad constipation. Ive tried stool softeners, milk of magnesia, taking fiber, drinking more and nothing seems to help. I am a vegetarian and drink alot and get lots of fiber but i still have a stomach ache almost every day and cannot go regularly. Any suggestions? Anything would be appreciated!

try a magnesium tablet. Good for your muscles as well as a natural laxative. That is what my endocrinologist recommends.
