Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com Your symptoms seem to be related to chronic constipation. Some recommendations to help relieve your constipation Drink two to four additional glasses of water a day. Maintain a strategic distance from caffeine-containing beverages and liquor, which can cause drying out. Include natural products, vegetables entire grains and other high-fiber nourishments to your eating routine. Eat less high-fat nourishments, similar to meat, eggs and cheddar. Eat prunes as well as grain oat. Keep a food journal and single out nourishments that constipate you. Get going, work out. Check how you sit on the can.
