I am a 29-year-old male. I have been experiencing something like constipation for the past one week. I have had no abdominal pain, but I feel like I need to go to the bathroom. I have a bowel movement in the morning, but I feel constipated the rest of the day. I took some stool softeners a couple of days which helped, but I am still experiencing the need to evacuate my bowels. Also, I am passing some gas, but it is coming in little blips. Should I take a laxative or could it be like hemorrhoids or something?
