Bowel Control Trouble

Fibro Daily August 31, 2012

Bowel issues can be an embarrassing part of dealing with fibromyalgia.

Much of the bowel trouble stems from the following, which often affects fibromyalgia patients:

  • Diarrhea.
  • Hemorrhoids.
  • Age-related (or not) changes in muscle and tissue.
  • A weak pelvic floor.
  • Damaged or weak sphincter muscles.

Certain medications, stress, and lack of a sex life can affect some of the above conditions. But bowel issues are not something that must be tolerated on a regular basis.

Kegel exercises and a blander diet can help prevent and improve some of these issues. Talking with your doctor is the first step in the right direction.
