Extremely eHealthy
You might try some magnesium citrate, this is generally what they use if you are going to have a colonoscopy, that should clean you out, you do have to drink it and it is kind of nasty tasting but it should help, but you stil lmight get yourself checked out by the Dr. When you can.

No urge for a bowel movement
I started having the same problem, even though I eat very healthy. Was constipated with irregular stools for about a month, then suffered from severe pain with lots of gas...then no urge, no nothing. I started taking pro-biotics TWICE a day, morning and evening, and had my first regular bowel movement, urge and all, a week ago. Back on track now.
