My gut feels like a rock for the last twelve hours. I took half a bottle of magnesium citrate at 11:00am and downing water as often as I can. I took the other half at 5:30pm.

Are there any food restrictions while waiting for it to work? No surgeries scheduled or anything, just want this pain to go away and have a bowel movement.

I'm 44, non smoker, sometimes drinker, overweight female.
