    It would have been nice to know when last you used the toilet, to have an idea of the possibility of impacted stool. Do you feel full or any tension in your anus. You can use liquid paraffin take 20mls twice daily for 48 hours while you continue taking a lot of fluids like 3L/day and he vegetables and fibres like you have been doing. If after that period you haven't gone, best to have a doctor examine and rule out stool impaction&they can decide a management plan thereafter.
