Constipation is a symptom, not a disease. Constipation is when a person passes small amounts of hard, dry stool, usually fewer than three times a week. People who are constipated may find it difficult and painful to have a bowel movement. Sometimes constipation can lead to complications, which have their own set of symptoms. These potential complications include: hemorrhoids, anal fissures, rectal prolapse,
fecal impaction, etc. Followings are symptoms and signs of constipation in TCM.
