In brief: Constipation symptom

When constipated, patients complain of symptoms like abdominal pain, bloating, fatigue, and severe cases have decrease in appetite, nausea and vomiting.
If you don't release the toxins from the body via feces, i feel it can affect your quality of life by decreasing one's energy levels. It can also affect your nutritional status since most who are constipated are afraid to eat and don't enough.

In brief: Obvious

Constipation simply means 1.
Inadequate or infrequent bms.2. Hard to pass stools like "bullets". 3. Large hard to pass stools that can even block the toilet. The harm is related to the fact that constipation is itself a symptom of poor health, not usually the cause of it. Look to your diet that needs more natural food.
