Should I see a doctor if for a week I’ve been unable to go to the bathroom unless I take laxatives?I even get stomach aches prior to going.?

It would be a good idea to consult a doctor. There could be a lot of reasons for constipation. Meanwhile, have you considered giving up the laxatives and eating a better diet, such as prunes and prune juice, also oatmeal, applesauce, and plenty of vegetables and liquids. You can become laxative dependent so should not continue using them.

PLEASE....get to the emergency room! Call an ambulance if necessary.
