Can Constipation Cause Chest Pain
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

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.
