Chest pain after bowel movement? Have been slightly constipated lately. Is this the cause or is it something else?

Chest pain after bowel movement? Have been slightly constipated lately. Is this the cause or is it something else?

Probably unrelated: I believe it is coincidental that you noticed chest pain after a bowel movement. Straining to pass stool does increase intra-abdominal pressure, but it would be unusual for this to cause chest pain, especially in a young woman of your age. If this is the only time you have chest pain, I think you can watch and see what happens. Work to relieve your constipation with more water, fiber, exercise. ...Read more

8 yr old daughter has constipation takin miralax, (polyethylene glycol) has stomach pain nausea & nw chest pain. Dr appt thurs or should she go nw. Hurts n middle of chest?

Depends: Miralax (polyethylene glycol) works by slowly increasing the water content in hard impacted stool. If she is severely constipated, this may cause labor like pains for a few days as the water pressure pushes against the blockage. Consider giving her a Pediatric Fleets Enema to see if you can loosen any hard stool plugs in rectum. This may help the colon relax and begin to empty. Contact your MDs after hours # if needed ...Read more

I had protected sex november 10 and had a full period. Since then I have been bloated, constipated, stomach is hard, lower right abdomen & chest pain?

Had a period since?: Have you had a period since November??? If not, you may be pregnant! If periods normal, bloating has many causes. Depends on location in abdomen, timing with food, if localized or all over, what makes it better and worse, if it's associated with pain, any change in stools, nausea, vomiting, fever, etc. Associated chest pain would suggest gallbladder problems. See a doctor for full exam. ...Read more
