Hallo Blocked colon
Constipation can be caused by not eating enough fibre, too little fluid, certain medications (like codein in headache tablets) stress, underactive thyroid. If it just suddenly started, and you are eating healthy, exercising and drinking enough water, ask your doctor if any other medication you are taking could be the cause. If no clear cause can be identified, you may need as last resort to see a gastroenterologist to do further tests (colonoscopy) to see if there may be any problems in the colon like a polyp or tumour.
