In brief: Constipation ?

20 y male seems to relate symptoms of recent-onset constipation.
Opiate pills, dehydration, lack of roughage & Irritable Bowel Syndrome, constipation type, might be explanatory; perhaps has recent dietary changes. Fluids, fiber, prunes & a touch of OTC laxative might resolve. If problem is persistent, see doctor. If have constant/severe abdominal pain &/or fever/vomiting obtain urgent evaluation.
