Were you looking for information about Constipation? Constapation is a common misspelling of constipation.
Constipation affects nearly everyone at some point. It is characterized by difficult or infrequent bowel movements and hard, dry stool. The most common causes are a poor diet or lack of exercise. People with this problem may find it difficult and painful to have a bowel movement and may also feel bloated, uncomfortable, and sluggish.
In most cases, the condition is only temporary and is not serious. Lifestyle changes that can ease symptoms include eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and drinking plenty of liquids. If a person has chronic constipation, a healthcare provider may recommend the use of laxatives until it goes away.
