Living with MS: Do You Experience Constipation?
To be honest, I do sometimes. Only a few times has it been so dramatic that I thought I might not be able to stand the consequences. I attribute at least one occurrence to a possible MS relapse which was effecting my intestinal motility.
This week I wrote about a recent diagnosis I received on Friday morning from my new GI doctor. It is a condition which we should all be aware of especially since it can be caused by chronic constipation.
Come read Digestive Health and Complications of a Low-Fiber Diet: What is Diverticulosis? and please be sure to leave a comment.
Besides undergoing medical procedures, traveling to speak, and meeting with friends to celebrate birthdays or the holiday, I have been working on a few posts. Hopefully I’ll get one finished and posted by next week.
In the meantime, check out Vicki’s question this week regarding health apps available for use on mobile devices. I have more than a dozen on my iPhone and enjoy each one for a different reason.
Probably the application which has gotten the most use is “Lose It!” which has helped me to keep track of what I eat, how much I weigh, and what exercise I get. A great motivator which has helped me to lose more than 40 pounds this calendar year. Whoohoo!!
