I think that most of us that take opiates are very familiar with the constipation issues that they cause. I have had horrible bouts with it and try my best to remember to take Miralax at least a few times a week. Well, I went out of town last week and guess that I must have forgot to take my Miralax. I had the most horrible experience today and am wondering if anyone else has ever experienced the same. I will try and be as delicate as I can in describing the situation. While trying to pass extremely hard stools today I was in such agonizing pain and I actually went completely numb from my waist down. The painful numbness in my legs and feet actually continued for about 1/2 hour or 45 minutes after the experience was over. It really scared me to death! I think that I have a really good idea of how Elvis died! I guarantee that I will never go more than a few days without Miralax again but I am wondering if any of you have experienced this painful and numb experience all the way down to your feet during a bowel movement? Should I be concerned? I hope that I was not too graphic but really had no other way to explain.
