Constipation is the most common gastrointestinal disease, responsible for 2.5 million doctor visits each year. Under normal circumstances, if the number of defecations per week is less than 3 times or defecation is difficult, there is constipation. In total, about 16% of the population suffers from constipation. When constipation is bothersome (and sometimes uncomfortable), it is considered a symptom rather than a disease.
It is important to know that normal bowel movements vary from person to person, some people may have bowel movements several times a day; Others once or twice a week. Constipation, like other symptoms, becomes a problem when it causes stress or anxiety in patients and affects their daily lives.
Whatever your bowel movements are, one thing is certain: the longer it takes to have a bowel movement before “poop,” the harder it will be to pass stool.
For most people, these symptoms are short-lived and have no significant impact on life. For some people, sudden constipation may be the first sign of bowel disease such as obstruction (eg, tumour, adhesions) or inflammation (eg, intestinal infection).
Under normal circumstances, if the number of defecations per week is less than 3 times or defecation is difficult, there is constipation. Some of the common symptoms of constipation include:
Loss of Appetite
Difficulty in Bowel Movement
Constipation can have many causes – lifestyle choices, medications, medical conditions, and pregnancy.
If constipation is left untreated, it can cause many problems, from tissue damage to infection. The dangers of poor bowel movement are:
|Haemorrhoids||When you have frequent bowel movements, this can cause swelling of the anus and/or the muscles in and around the anus. These swollen blood vessels are called haemorrhoids or haemorrhoids and can cause pain, itching and bleeding from the anus.|
|Anal fissures||When hard stools pass through the anus regularly, they can break the skin. Constipation, known as anal fissure, is another cause of abdominal pain and inflammation.|
|Stool entrapment||When stool does not pass normally, it enters the bowel, rectum, and anus. Fecal impaction occurs when hard stools form and cannot leave the body.|
|Diverticulitis||Diseases associated with constipation can also lead to diverticular disease or the formation of small pouches along the colon wall. If the stool blast fills the sacs with stool, the stool can cause infection and pain in the area. This condition is called diverticulitis.|
|Incontinence||Straining to have bowel movements puts too much pressure on the bladder or the muscles that control the bladder. When the body moves to the bladder or bowel this can cause stress, incontinence or urination.|
