I’m 16 and laity I haven’t been feeling normal. On Tuesday I went to the mall. I had that “I have to poop feeling”. Since I went to the mall I didn’t want to go and use the public bathroom so I just held it in all day. I remember on Wednesday I felt like I had to go in the morning but I couldn’t go. When I would push the only thing that would happen was air came out, like I was farting. On Thursday I finally had a BM with a lot of force it came out. On Friday and today (Saturday) I feel like I had to have a BM every so often. It’s the same symptoms as Wednesday, I felt like I had to go but just air would come out(sometimes nothing) when I needed to go. Is this a case of constipation or is it something more severe? And if it is constipation anyone hear of any home remedies? Today I started to drink more and more water to soften my stools a little and I started to walk around to loosen then up but nothing helped. Most of the time I push and I feel like I don’t have enough energy to push it out. I might of also strained something? (sorry for the grammer. sux dont it?) thankyou
Is this constipation?
Sounds like it could be consipation. Eat more fruits and veggies and try drinking prune juice. I know prune juice is nasty stuff but it gets the job done!

sounds good thanks :-)
Note that the prune juice is a mild laxative that will help for now, but it seems you don't have enough fibre in your diet, so you want to a make a permanent change and include more fruit and vegetables in your diet as Amanda suggested, and then you'll find you won't have to drink that nasty prune juice all the time.
