If you have trouble with constipation, then it’s probably time to learn how to stop it.
The scapulum, which is a curved, straight, thick ligament that runs from the anus to the anus, has a role to play in relieving constipation.
But how to use it depends on what’s causing the constipation and what your symptoms are.
To learn more, we’ve put together a guide to help you get started.
Scapula causes constipation If you are having constipation symptoms, you may be experiencing some of the following: constipation is getting worse or is getting more severe You are having a constipation problem for a long time and are not able to get out of bed or get out from under the covers.
Your symptoms are worsening and it’s affecting your work or social life.
You are unable to go to the toilet or urinate.
You have not had any bowel movements for a few days or weeks.
You may also be having pain in the area around your anus.
You do not have a normal bowel movement or bowel movements have become less frequent or are less frequent.
You feel you have a sore around your penis.
You can also experience: pain or cramping in your bowel or anus 2.
Scraping around for the scab The first step to stopping constipation in its tracks is to recognise that you have been scratching around for a while and to seek medical help.
Scabs are the tiny, red, sticky tissue that forms when bacteria build up in your stool.
They are found on most surfaces.
Scabbing is a common part of the bowel movement, and is usually associated with constrictions in the colon.
It is not associated with cramping, bloating or discomfort, and it is not linked to any other symptoms.
Scars, swelling and scarring Scars are the marks left behind when a person has had an infection or a procedure done.
They may be visible on your skin or may be white, brown, red or blue.
Scarring is usually due to a cut, or a scar.
Scraps are usually small and may form around the anus or the rectum, or may also form around your rectum.
They can also form on the edges of your skin.
Scratching around for scabs can be a sign that you need to see a doctor.
You don’t have a problem If you’re not having any constipation problems, then there is probably no need to seek further medical help and that is the end of the story.
If you’ve been scratching and scouring for a month or more, you are likely to have a good indication that you may have a bacterial infection, or you may not have symptoms of constipation at all.
If this is the case, then a doctor might recommend you see a specialist, but if you don’t want to go there, then you can talk to your GP and the scabs might be taken off with a topical anaesthetic and/or some other type of medication.
Scratches and scaring If you notice any changes in your condition, or if you’ve noticed any signs of pain or discomfort with your anus or rectum after you’ve had a few scabs removed, then consider the possibility that you are constipation sufferer.
This can be the result of a previous infection, which has affected your stool, or possibly an underlying condition that causes a constriction in your anus and/ or rectal wall.
You might also have an underlying disorder that causes constriction in your colon.
How to treat constipation Your doctor may suggest that you do some physical exercise and try to reduce the amount of constipating activity you do.
You will need to use a stool softener, or use a medication that reduces the amount that your body makes in the bowel, such as a laxative.
If the constipator has a chronic disease such as cancer or diabetes, the doctor might also suggest that the constrictor get a diet and exercise plan.
If your doctor doesn’t suggest physical activity, then your GP may suggest some of these things.
Some exercises to help with constipation include: lifting the weight of a piece of furniture or furniture support, or putting something over the top of the bed or other place you’re sleeping
