I do find the linseeds ever so good.
You can buy them on Amazon or in Holland and Barratt. Buy golden or brown linseeds.
The easiest way to do it is get a coffee grinder. Grind a tablespoon of linseeds every morning and eat in cereal or yoghurt.
Drink plenty of liquid as well… actually whatever you decide to do for the constipation drink plenty of liquid. Most constipation is caused by the poo being very dry in the large intestine and not even getting down to the bowel… which is why when you’re constipated the pain is often of right hand side… just under hip… the bowel is on left hand side and it won’t move along as it’s too dry.
It has quite a journey to make… up to just under your belly button and then down left hand side into the bowel. You can try massaging your tummy starting on right hand side below hip and up across tummy and down left hand side. The bowel nurse at hospital explained all this to me. Massaging can actually soften the poo to move it along.
If you try linseeds, keep them in the fridge. It’s the oil in them that make you go to the loo and the oil can dry out quite easily. You can also buy capsules with the oil in (sometimes called flax seed oil) but they are too big for me to swallow.
It’s a problem loads of us have with MS so you’re certainly not alone with it.
Hope this helps,
