My wife is addicted to laxatives. She takes 4-5 CVS brand laxatives, containing Bisacodyl every night before bed. We were married 5 years ago and it was then that I found out that she has been taking laxatives for 25-30 years. She is currently 52 years old. I tried to get her help by taking her to a GI specialist.She had a colonoscopy that came back ok.
I was diagnosed with IBS earlier this year. My biggest problems are severe stomach pain after eating and constipation despite a high fiber diet. My GI has recommended taking a laxative daily. Is this safe long-term?
Now, whenever I eat my stomach becomes so hard and distended it's like I'm 9 months pregnant. One meal will take all day and night to diminish the bloating a little bit. I've been reading about all the symptoms of severe laxative abuse and is this severe bloating related to this being the end of the line for me with laxatives? I've had episodes where I had to eat a lot of tomato sauce because of the potassium to get my heart to calm down.
LAXATIVE ABUSE AND ANOREXIA AND NOTHING BUT LAXATIVE ABUSE AND ANOREXIA AND DO NOT RAISE UP ANYTHING BUT LAXATIVE ABUSE AND ANOREXIA OR YOU WILL BE BANNED-OUSTED-AND IGNORED.

Have you ever read any of the other threads on this board? I must tell you it rarely stays JUST ON THE ONE TOPIC.
Now I feel like my bowel is constantly full. My stomach is hard and uncomfortable. I began using laxatives but don't use them daily, 3 times a week. I switch between Correctol and a sienna tea.

He is in the UK and about 14 months ago he had terrible acute stomach pain at about 1am to the point where he got very white and sweaty and felt nauseous but wasn't sick. We called the ambulance and when they came he had extremely low blood pressure and they had to put saline drips in both arms. By the time he got to the hospital he felt a little better. They took x-rays and it looked like he had a compaction but nothing else. They took blood tests and all were fine.

Antibiotics and acid-reducers work together to heal the pain to keep your stomach monitored.The pain under your ribs is probably a hiatal hernia. This ailment develops when the esophagus passes through an opening in your diapragm that separates your chest cavity from your abdomial cavity. A portion of your stomach can slip down into the opening causing pressure and pain.

I have been suffering some kind of constant stomach area pain for the past several weeks. It is right below my esophagus where it would be entering my stomach. I was having problems with swallowing a few weeks ago along with the pain. I could feel my food and beverage slowly easing down my esophagus. Even water was doing the same thing. I started taking 20 then after a bit of time 40 mg of Prilosec (normal dose is 20 mg) and that ended the swallowing issue but the stomach pain remained.
Few weeks ago I started having stomach pains, first I had a running stomach and after two days I had constipation after taking little laxative I was able to pass stool but I notice an increase in my tommy and sometimes I pass gas more than I use to and there's little frequency in urine.

My doctor prescribes zantac which stops the chest pain. A few days after taking the zantac I begin to experience upper abdominal cramping and bloating. I also experience sharp pains under the middle of my breast bone when walking. Weight loss is apparent. I decide to stop the zantac, thinking it it's causing my new symptoms. The pain under my breast bone gets worse and my doctor recommends resuming zantac and start taking prilosec.
We saw her new oncologist (from the clinical trial) and she said her stomach is full of gas because of the cancer irritating the stomach, gave her a laxative and said she needs to start treatment right away.

The following Monday she went to the hospital to do some tests before she starts the treatment. The weighted her and she was 150 lbs.

She told me to get magnesium silicate. Which is a laxative in itself but the weird part about it is that after I drink that stuff all the pain goes away. This in my mind means I am headed in the right direction. Now! I am not saying that this is the complete answer but just today I did some digging on magnesium and found that it is a very important part of the body. It helps keep our bodies in function and with out it can cause all sorts of problems.
Fullness feeling in stomach. Gurgling from stomach. Thinner stool. Stinging pain in pelvis and reproductive organs. I think I have gained about 5 pounds, but not changing diet, and no loss of appetite. All this is one weeks time. I read how cancer can make it flat and then thin, but it was flat for only one day, and since has been small. I doubt cancer acts that fast. I would assume cancer would act much more gradually.

By this time I was in a lot of pain, my stomach was swelling, and I was retaining water. After three and a half weeks, my stomach was so swollen that I didn't eat and all I could do after class was lay down because of the pain. I started to drink excess amounts of water in an effort to move things along. Then, one night I woke up and almost passed out as I walked to the bathroom. I was rushed to the ER, vomiting and dizzy, and it turned out I had hyponatremia (dangerously low sodium).
