Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
I started losing my hair more when I started taking the tramadol for pain. I have lost quite a bit of hair since then and started balding on the top of my head. I don't know if it is hormonal or from all the medication I am on because I know that can cause hair loss also. My hair is also limp and lifeless and I have gained about 15 pounds since being on the tramadol. It is the only medication that helps with my pain and chronic anxiety caused by the Cymbalta so I don't know what else to do.
From this study (7 months ago):

I think if you just pushed as hard as you could some poops would fall out. If not try drinking 2 litre of milk followed by 500g prune bits. This will sofly relax your poops so they can fall out easily and unselfconsciously.
