Constipation: This may be a sign of some form of irritable bowel syndrome. It seems that you have already seen a GI specialist. Continue to see this specialist and keep a symptom diary. This will help to unravel the exact problem that may be developing. For now increase fiber in your diet.

Water and fiber: You may take a fiber laxative like Metamucil and drink enough water daily so that your urine is colorless. For the long term you may try to increase your intake of fiber foods. Consult this site for fiber foods. http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/high-fiber-foods/art-20050948
