In brief: Constipation

If you have an urge to move your bowels and can't, you should try working from below rather than take more laxatives.
Try gylcerin rectal suppositories, dulcolax rectal suppositories or a gentle enema. If you have no urge, try a gentle stimulant like senokot (senna). If you still can't have a bm, you need to be checked for impaction or other blockage. Abdominal pain and vomiting would make an exam urgent.
