Symptoms & Causes

Signs and Symptoms

Can classify constipation as either acute or chronic, with chronic constipation frequently lasting longer than three months. Symptoms may differ from person to person. Following are some of the most commonly identified symptoms of constipation:

  • Pain in abdomen
  • Less than three bowel movements in a week
  • Painful and difficult motions
  • Hard, dry or lumpy stools
  • Feeling uneasy or bloated
  • A feeling of incomplete emptying of bowels.

Causes 

Lifestyle habits, medical conditions, medicines, and pregnancy can be possible causes of constipation.

Lifestyle Habits that can cause constipation are:

  • Drinking less water
  • Not exercising enough
  • Having a lot of milk or cheese products
  • Not eating food rich in fibre
  • Controlling the urge to pass stool
  • Irregular sleep timings
  • Stress
  • Changes in everyday routine, including travelling or eating.

Medical Conditions that can lead to constipation include:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) (bloating, abdominal pain, and either diarrhoea or constipation or alternating diarrhoea and constipation).
  • Endocrine system disorders such as diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypopituitarism
  • An anal fissure is a medical disorder in which there is a tear in the anus lining. Fearing pain, a person may resist the urge to use the washroom.
  • A tumour of the rectum can also cause pain while passing stools.
  • Obstruction of the rectum or anus can also lead to constipation. Examples include rectal prolapse or haemorrhoids/piles.
  • Structural defects in the digestive tract such as a fistula (an abnormal connection between organs), malrotation (congenital abnormality in which the intestinal tract doesn’t form or rotate correctly), imperforate anus (abnormally located or absent anus), etc., can block the passage of stool.

Medications that can cause constipation are:

  • Antacids having aluminium or calcium
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like naproxen and ibuprofen
  • Narcotics (pain-relieving medicines) containing oxycodone, codeine, and hydromorphone
  • Medicines to control blood pressure like beta-blockers and calcium channel blockers
  • Antipsychotic and antidepressant medications

Many other drugs can also cause constipation. It is recommended to clear your concerns with a doctor before taking any medication.

When to See a Doctor?

Seek medical help if constipation is accompanied by:

  • Fever
  • Bloody stools
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Bleeding rectum
  • Vomiting
  • Constant abdominal pain
  • Pain in the lower back.

Initially hesitant as this was my first time ever consulting online for medical help but the process was streamlined and very well coordinated. Ansh was a great help and explained every step thoroughly. It gave me confidence that I am in safe hands. I could better pay attention to my medical condition as all my paperwork was taken care of along with my insurance and payments. It's a great concept I think and a very smooth process
