I recently started having issues with my bowels for about a month. I have had sudden constipation and stool issues. When I do go, my bowels are thin and soft around the edges. I do have constant pressure in my lower stomach, and it hurts if pressed upon. I have tried exercise, probiotics, fiber supplements, and increasing my water intake. I have had incidents when I could not make it to the restroom because I suddenly needed to go with no warning.
I am currently on 75 mg Venlafaxine daily and have had a Mirena IUD for three years. I did have an x-ray done of my stomach about a year ago, and the doctor noted there was a large amount of bowels in my colon, but nothing was suggested at the time. Please help.
