Hello, Constipation does any else have this problem? I am newly diagnosed to Ms in March this year. I now can not open my bowels without using laxatives, I can only take them once a week as l need to be near a bathroom at all times, this means l need to spend the day in bed to avoid accidents. If l don't take laxatives l can not open my bowels at all. I have a very health diet, drink lots of water etc. My Ms Nurse said if my bowels are full this could be causing the pain in my back. My neurologist knows l have to take laxatives to open my bowels. I don't know if it is worth to ask to be referred to a bowel specialist? Not sure if they could help though.
