Were you looking for information about Constipation? Consitpation is a common misspelling of constipation.
At one time or another, almost everyone gets constipated. Constipation is the passage of hard, dry bowel movements. People with the condition often find it painful and difficult to have a bowel movement and may feel bloated, sluggish, and uncomfortable. Most people with mild constipation do not need laxatives, but the drugs may be recommended for people with chronic constipation. It is important to eat a high-fiber diet, drink plenty of fluids, and exercise regularly in order to help prevent a recurrence of this problem.
