Often when a pet presents with these symptoms, they are caused by pain. But determining the source of the pain isn't always straightforward. It could be abdominal as we would see if perhaps there was pancreatitis or intestinal problems or it could be due to spinal pain as we see when there is a ruptured disc or bulging disk.
Have you had him examined by a veterinarian for this problem?
I am sorry but this website is not meant to replace a physical exam, but only to help educate you on possible causes and help you to decide if veterinary intervention is needed.
It is certainly a good sign that he doesn't act painful if you press on his abdomen, but a vet is trained to palpate the abdomen in a was so as to identify specific organs that may be involved, or if there are any abnormalities palpated. On top of that, by checking his neurologic reflexes, it can be determined if his spine may be irritated and possibly causing pain.
If this has been going on for two days now, it definitely warrants a trip to the vet for a physical exam and a more definitive diagnosis as to the cause. It is just not possible to determine the cause without an exam or over the Internet.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please reply so I can clarify for you.
