Hi I seem to have an issue with my digestion


Q: Hi.
I seem to have an issue with my digestion or toilet(poo). I used to go three times a day, now two and sometimes one. When i need the toilet it will be sudden and i thought this was normal until i spoke to my husband and he said he can hold going for hours. After i go i get a drop in energy and am so tired and weak i have to nap or take vitamin and fatigue syrup. I also feel sick and seem to get acid from my stomach area and my stomach feels very empty. I've had a lot of problems with constipation, and have had to use many things on the past like supository and enema (i think it's called), I've had all kinds of constipation like impactation (forgive me if I'm mistyping the name) i have also had a full prolapse in the past which luckily went back in by itself. I also suffer from the opposite which can be not fully formed feces (sorry to be crude). I don't have children and I'm young female 25 slim and otherwise healthy. I drink and eat well and on my feet a lot. I have a hemroid which always flares up with the slightest constipation. I can go toilet just from drinking tea, and if i eat something small like a cracker in the morning I'd go, i always go pretty soon after i eat. This all happens around breakfast time mainly. I can go twice at times without barely eating a thing, just tea and something small. It's making my life very tough because I'm worried when i eat out,and when i am out generally as i get cramps and need to go right away and so worry i cant find a toilet or get there in time, and also the weakness nausea acid etc i get when i do go, as i am weak and exhausted and end up needing to rest. It's limiting what i can and can't do and I'm generally always feeling weak tired and lethargic. Please please can you suggest what may be the cause in all this and what i can do and what i shouldn't do. Thank you.
