I have been really constipated for almost a week so I did fleet Enema (sodium bisphosphate). It worked great but I feel I may have squeezed it in too forcefully. ??

In brief: Constipation causes

Most cases of constipation are secondary to the diet.
I noticed that you also listed that you also had low thyroid output. Best measure of that is TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone). Don't eat constipating foods for a while( rice, barley, oatmeal) milk, bananas. It should do it.
