I drink a lot of water already, at least 100 oz a day and I'm sure it's more than that--- recommended by doctors. If it wasn't for my Linzess 290 mcg medication there is NO way I could be working right now so your advice means I would be not working, not smart. It's how I am able to go to these job meetings without embarrassing myself and having to quit even though it's hard. I take Linzess during weekends so these job meetings take place first day of the week so I was able to go to the bathroom much more but still not completely. I remember I spent like 8 days without taking any of this medication, eating a lot of fruit, water, and vegetables and enough fiber, and doing the yoga medication and massages/exercises and stretches specifically designed for pelvic floor disorder and what happened? I couldn't go at all. Why? Because I didn't take the Linzess. That's why. Then I had enough and took Linzess and what happened? I went to the bathroom even though I had to push hard still but went at least 50% more. That's a difference. Use your head.
You'd be hard pressed to find anyone here who's an expert in functional defecation issues ( or for that matter probably not much interested either, I know I'm not), so it's foolish for you to present your myriad problems on a general open forum and expect responses you consider relevant to your "conditions". You should know this, and your disparaging remarks to posters who don't respond the way you think they should is uncalled for.

You would be much better off addressing your questions and issues to a gastroenterologist, preferably one who specializes in functional GI issues.

read the title, the post is about high blood pressure medication, I asked a question about it, the pelvic floor disorder was just an explanation of what is going on. That's it.

OP: When I was working to NOT take meds for blood pressure issues, this is one area that I did NOT go to, if I were starting today on that path I would surely work with homeopathics. Once on the BP meds, it's like the rest of one's life med. I don't know if the 2 meds I take cause constipation issues but I've had a history of constipation and work my issue every day.

You know there are foods that help reduce high blood pressure and celery is one.

I made an appointment with a kidney specialist. He will give me high blood pressure medication. All the medications have made my other medical condition that is chronic even worse than what it is. This time I can't lose not even 1 day from work. If I do, I will be fired. So this is what is most likely going to happen. I won't have a job due to this. I have no other choice since now my condition is worse. I don't think people understand what pelvic floor dyssynergia is and people who have it chronic. No realistic person will be in a group meeting for 1 hour and a half having gas that can be heard. Nobody is going to do that. That natural response is to try to avoid those situations by going to the bathroom. Well, I can't go completely even when taking Linzess but I will have it less. The other problem is that everything can make my kidney disease worse---- taking Vitamin D is known to make it worse, I can't do that and my regular doctor said not to, high potassium is dangerous, too much sodium is dangerous, even magnesium is dangerous for those with kidney disease. If I run and exercise, that is doing more damage to my kidneys since my blood pressure gets higher. Getting stress out or angry will do more damage to the kidneys. What is doing a lot of damage to my kidneys now is this pelvic floor disorder since I have NO choice but to push so hard my heart is beating fast. So this condition is doing damage to my kidneys in 2 days--- by having to push hard for a long time in the bathroom and increase my blood pressure and by preventing me from taking medication. Pelvic floor dyssynergia is the worst medical condition I ever had. It has made my life miserable. I have to isolate myself and have no social life. It's also exhausting using all that energy to push being in the bathroom for over 1 hour sometimes. I can't even get in shape like I want to. Doing any ab exercises has always made my condition of chronic constipation even worse. A physical therapist who specializes in treating this confirmed it's known to make it worse for those with this condition so I can never get the body I want to. I can't do cardio? That's all I like. So I am supposed to just lay in bed and wait until I die? I plan to do cardio- jogging and elliptical during this weekend. I am not going to allow pelvic floor or high blood pressure or kidney disease to prevent me from enjoying life.
