A year ago, I was severely constipated. I would go to the bathroom once a week. It was a psychological kind of constipation. The bathroom that was available to me was always disgusting and I refused to use it, so I would use my parents' bathroom instead when I visited them on the weekends. I never felt the urge to go to the bathroom during the week. If I ever had an urge, I wouldn't suppress it. I would use that disgusting bathroom in those rare instances. NOTE: This scenario went on for 3 months until I moved to a better place. Since then I go to the bathroom every 1 to 2 days.
START OF THE PAIN: I was driving to my parents' house one day and I felt especially blocked up. All of a sudden, feel a horrible pain start in my side. When I got out of the car and stood up, the pain reduced slightly. It reduced even more when I went to the bathroom. By the end of the day I was much better.
For several months, I would get that pain again even if I wasn't constipated, but it would always happen while I was driving or slouching. Now I notice it more often, regardless where I am, but it's mild.
I told a doctor about it and he dismissed it as a "muscle ache" or "gas." My insurance isn't the best, so I can't just see any doctor I want. I'm afraid this is serious. Please help. Thanks
I'm 25, male.
