Hello, and thank you for choosing Justanswer about your concern. I’m Ted Manos M.D., and I can help but I need to know your age, gender, are you actually taking your temperature and are you going to check with your doctor for the bowel movement situation?

Male , 27 . Temp. Is 96.1 no doctor visit yet.

Thanks for your quick response. It’s not typical to have problems with bowel movements at your age. You need a check up and one thing that comes to mind about constipation is low thyroid function. With your check up, your thyroid function can be looked with the blood test. I hope this is only a slight virus but usually your bowels move too much with that. Get the thyroid checked.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
