Hello, my name is Dr Stan, I am US trained, Board Certified with 30 years of patient experience. Please allow me a moment to review your question.
I'm sorry you are constipated. As you probably know stress/anxiety can increase either constipation, diarrhea or both.
Yes please elaborate on your medical problem.

Thank you for this additional information.
May I suggest you drink 64 ounces of water daily. Go to your Pharmacy and purchase:
A Fleet Oil Retention Enema, a Fleet Regular Adult Enema and a package of Senna Tablets.
Use the Fleet Oil Retention Enema first, follow with the Fleet Adult Enema. You will have a bowel movement quickly and you will feel better. Before bed, take 2 Senna Tablets. When you awake you should have another movement. Your diet should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. No not take any "nausea" medication as this willo increase constipation.
Continue to take 2 Senna Tablets before bed for the next 5-7 days and keep up with the water and fruits and vegetables. Stop eating white flour products and eat only whole grain products. You should have regular bowel movements within 10-12 days after initiating this program.
You are welcome.
I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?

You should not need the Senna on a nightly basis but only occasionally, if you get "fullness" and you are not having adequate movements.
Glad to help.
Nausea is caused by upper GI problems, spices, stress, irritation and increased stomach acid. If you have been suffering from constipation and that is gone, your nausea should also resolve. If your nausea continues, then taking an Antacid such as Gaviscon Liquid will help. If you have acid reflux, then over the counter Nexium or similar PPI will reduce the acid production in your stomach and rid you of the "nausea".
You can eat steak and other red meat in moderation. Use the Oil retention first and after you have a movement follow in about an hour or 2 with the Regular enema.
