Pooping regularly but feel backed up. Had a bm this morning containing corn from a meal i ate on monday night. Lots of gas in intestines.

OK: As long as you are regular, that is good. Increase your fluids in your diet and fiber and that can help improve your "backed up" feeling. Fiber is good for bowel stability, but too much may constipate you as well. Play detective and learn the foods that back you up, then only ea them in moderation. Always stay well hydrated and that will help bowel regularity. Best wishes. ...Read more

Yogurt contains milk: Some people are quite sensitive to milk products - and as much as I like yogurt, you might want to try stopping consumption of that and seeing how your symptoms are...If your symptoms improve, then you might want to try Lactaid or something like that to help you digest the lactose in milk. You could make your own yogurt with soy milk if you want the benefit of those 'probiotics'...capsules also OK ...Read more
