Constipation: You are constipated. See you doctor. Get checked, make sure that you do not have certain medical problems like hypothyroidism and celiac disease. Your doctor should examine you to rule out other medical problems and recommend treatment such as MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) and high- fiber diet.
