Quick weight loss and didn’t have bowel movements.

Resolved Question:

Started losing weight quickly and recently stopped but one thing I noticed is I haven't had a bowel movement since Friday and I've eaten a ton of food but still only maintained my weight.

Should I be concerned or ask my doctor? I recently had what appeared to be an onset of MS like symptoms with mainly lack of muscle definition, which previously existed, and during this period I lost a lot of weight.

I don't feel full or bloated but I'm concerned because prior to this year (literally 2015) eating food would cause weight gain and I always needed to maintain a diet and exercise to keep it in control. Since this year I haven't worked out and started losing weight rapidly until I increased my calorie intake to ~4k/day. Since Friday I stopped losing weight but I also stopped having any bowel movements.

For example Monday I ate eggs and bacon for breakfast, a grilled chicken salad for lunch, a whole large pizza for dinner, and probably 4 candy bars for a snack.

Any other time in my life and I probably would have had to loosen the belt and would kill my toilet the next day.

Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
You're not supposed to use this Temazepam, and you're likely to be allergic to other benzodiazepines, such as alprazolam (Xanax), chlordiazepoxide (Librium), clorazepate (Tranxene), diazepam (Valium), lorazepam (Ativan), or triazolam (Halcion).
Can you tell me why was Temazepam prescribed to you?
Since you developed such an adverse effect it is better you discuss with your physician so that you can avoid benzodiazapines altogether.
