User Profile
I have been taking laxatives (dulcolax), for almost a week now.
This past 2 days, I have been feeling pressure in my abdomen and it feels extremely sore.when i go to the restroom & push, it feels so sore.What could it be?.Also i feel the need to pee alot, due to the pressure.Are the laxatives causing this?

Could very well be. Why are you eating laxatives like candy? This is not a good thing. You should NEVER have to go to the bathroom and push.........hence the term hemmorhoid. Drink more water and eat more fruits/vegetables, whole grains...add more fiber to your diet and toss the ducolax into the garbage.
