My 3 year old has started messing in his pants!!!

My 3 year old was potty trained at 2 years old. He was amazingly easy to potty train too! He has always had problems going #2. He used to get so constipated he would scream and pull his hair and his ears. For 3 -5 days while he was trying to go he would do this. I took him to a specialist about a year and a half ago and they started him on miralax which has worked wonders for him. Until recently that is. He is starting to have a hard time again and in the last 2 or 3 months he has started pooing in his undies. Never once did he ever do this while he was potty training. Ever! I don't know if it has something to do with his issue or if he is just going through a phase or what. I am completely losing my patients and don't know how to handle this. I don't know if he's just holding it until he just cannot hold it any longer or what the deal is. As a punishment i put a diaper on him which he absolutely hates but it doesn't stop him from doing it. It was happening every now and then but he's done it the past 3 times he has gone. We do have an appointment at his specialist next month so i'm hoping she can give us some insight. Have any other moms gone through this and can give me some advise????
