I am a 17 year old female. My weight is 140 kg and height 5'4". I need your guidance and advice on something that has been going on for a very long time.
In the past, I have been a vegetarian, paleo, vegan, etc. And I am currently a vegan because I feel it is the right thing to do.
I eat extremely well, always have fruits and/or vegetables with every meal. I am a very conscious and intuitive eater.
However, for a very long time now I have been having odd bowel movements. I have rabbit pellet-like stools, and sometimes I never make a bowel movement in a day. It is becoming an issue because for the past few months I have had this problem.
I have been feeling extremely bloated and uncomfortable. I never feel hungry and constantly have this fullness feeling and assume that it is because of the problem with my bowel movements. And maybe my bowels are not clear.
It is very uncomfortable because I enjoy eating and want to eat and exercise. However, with this constant feeling, I do not really enjoy eating or exercising.
I wake up every morning with a bloated feeling in my stomach. I do not know what to do and how to fix and stop this issue and start having normal healthy bowels. I need some advice and really appreciate that you will take the time to help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
It is IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). It is a benign disorder, requiring only supportive management to regularize bowel habits.
This disorder occurs in many people these days (10 to 30 % population are affected by this). This condition is aggravated by low fiber intake.
It will take time for this disorder to heal.
