Chronic Constipation

From last 20-25 days I am having severe constipation. Problem is only 5-10% stomach gets empty. All day I am having gas and feeling uneasy. Pain in heart and back, not able to breath properly because of pain. I work for around 12 hours sitting at one place without much movement. Few days I took kayam churan but no use. Last week I went to general physician and he gave me Gerbisa tablets but again it was not much helpful hardly 5-10% stomach gets empty. Situation is that I have stopped eating regular meals and just eating fruits. Please suggest me if there is any solution. Thank you.

Hello there...I can understand your concern. You need to modify your diet and lifestyle. Eat foods rich in fibres like green leafy vegetables, raw fruits and vegetables. Avoid spicy, oily, outside junk foods completely. Drink plenty of water  (3 to 4 litres per day). If this doesn't help, then consult a general surgeon for further evaluation. You will need to be evaluated for any gastrointestinal abnormalities. Might require stool softeners for a few days.
