I see that you're having severe constipation. I also saw that you've been to the Dr. Did they check you for IBS. Most people think IBS is only when you get diarrhea but that's not always the case. What about your diet, are you eating enough fiber? Have you been checked for food allergies?

Milk of mag is the best lax choice. No cramping. It tastes bad though. The magnesium pills in the vitamin section at walmart are ionized and work wonders. Don't  exceed 750mg a day, but it is recommended for recurring constipation.

MILK OF MAG DID CAISE SEVERE CRAMPS .I GOT CHILL BUMPS ON ARMS AND LEGS CRAMPING AND I HAD TO STOP RIGHT THERE IN YHE CAR. THE TIME ANY LAX DEPENDS ON THE PERSON. ESPECIALLY IF U TAKE PAIN DRUGS,HAVE IBS -C OR WHT I HAVE TORTOUS INTESTINES. I WAS MISS DIAGNOSID FOR 14 YRS. THT DIAGNOSIS IS ONLY SEEN WITH A COLONOSCOPY OR CT WITH CONTRAST. IT LATE STAGE WHEN THEY FIND A BLOCAGE. I WAS GETTING PAIN UNDER RIBS ON LEFT SWEARING IT WAS SPLEEN,PANCREAS,OR GALL BLADDER. FINALLY AFTER 14 YEARS FOUND A DOC THT THREW AWAY ALL OTHER DOCS INFO AND TEST AND STARTED OVER. HE ALSO FOUND HPYLORI WHICH WAS TESTED SHOWN NEG BY MY INTERNAL MED DOC A YR. PRIOR. SO MAKE SURE DOCS KNOW WHAT THE TEST REQURIERS BEFORE U DO IT. ESPECIALLY H-PYLORI. CAN U TELL ME WHY U NEED MILK OF MAG AND HOW OFTEN. U CAN OD ON MAGNESSIUM OF ANY KIND AS IT AFFECTS UR BLOOD PH.

Well I haven't tried it yet. I have the bottle but I'm just really scared about taking it because the Miralax made me hurt so much and didn't even do it's job. And Mineral Oil just goes straight through me now. That's why I was wondering about Milk of Magnesium. But thanks for telling me your story! We're still in the process of testing for things but these tests aren't for a long while. I've watched a lot of Medical Mystery shows and everyone on there was diagnosed with the wrong thing at first, And I'm scared it'll happen to me too.
