Go dairy free.: I do not know the duration of your symptoms. It may be due to viral or bacteria infection. Elimination diet may give us an answer. Avoid all dairy products except yogurt for 3-4 weeks & see the result. Do the same with wheat. In the mean time stay hydrated & take Good quality probiotics- kefir is a good yogurt drink loaded with high quality probiotics.

Is it normal to have upset stomach, bloating, headache, gas, frequent bowel movements and excessive urination, and hot flashes, before period?

Is it normal to have upset stomach, bloating, headache, gas, frequent bowel movements and excessive urination, and hot flashes, before period?

We hope not: That does sound like more than annoying PMS. Even if an exam determines thatit is all PMS, it's a severe type and you can find help from an OBGYN. Have an exam and discover what's going on. That's too bad to just allow it to go on and on w/out putting up a fight. I hope it's an easy win.

Miralax (polyethylene glycol) and fiber: Make sure to drink plenty of fluids. Avoid caffeinated beverages, though. Eat leafy veggies and get a fiber supplement such as Metamucil or Citrucel. Adding Miralax (polyethylene glycol) to it may be helpful if fiber alone doesn't help.

Visit your doctor: I would advise you to get checked out. In rare situations, what you describe can be caused by a tumor, growth or cancer in the rectum. If caught early, this can be effectively treated. Don't worry, there are many non-cancerous causes too, but you would hate to miss something that needed to be treated urgently.

See GI: Your symtpoms certainly sound chronic with issues since 16yo. Bleeding with bm is never normal, so it is recommended for you to see a GI dr. For an evaluation, as they can not only ascertain the reason for your spotting of blood, but can start the evaluation for possible ibs/ibd. Best wishes.

Constipation 72 y.o.: Consider prune juice-2-3 glasses / day, prunes, milk of magnesia 1 table spoon 2x a day x 4 days, also consider Miralax, (polyethylene glycol) half the dose -only if sure no obstruction, massage, abdomen and walk, glycerin suppository may also help. Would decrease fiber today as can cause more impaction. In 72 year old would follow up with doctor and get CT make sure no obstruction also check TSH/ T4 f/u/ w/ doc

Inflammatory bowel??: If not a brief history i.e. More than two weeks, need to see gastroenterology to rule out inflammatory bowel disease. If so, usually meds control it. But you need diagnosis with a scope.
