Hi Anon

Thank you for your question and welcome !

It seems like you have constipation, something that is very uncomfortable. 

Constipation can be cause by dehydration, travel, medications, pregnancy, recent surgery, lack of fiber and other factors. 

To stop constipation, it's important to drink a lot of liquids and increase your fiber intake.
