Thank you for the information.
I am sorry to hear about your symptoms.
Based on your description, it does not look like an acute problem. Moreover, I do not see any other associated symptoms other than occasional gas/constipation. This kind of discomfort can be associated with many medical problems such as dyspepsia, excessive intestinal gas, constipation, or other gastrointestinal problems. Increase gas is usually due to increase swallowing of gas during drinking and increase production of gas in colon from undigested food. You need to do some changes in your diet, life style, and may take meds to get rid of it. Avoid foods which are increasing gas production, don't eat/drink too fast, chew the food properly, increase water intake, avoid smoking, cut down fat intake, and increase your daily mobility.

Since you are on several medication, it can be gastric drug induced irritation as well. The way you have described it... sounds like you have been struggling with it for a while. At this point, the best option is to follow certain conservative measures by the time you see a gastro doctor for proper investigation.

In my personal opinion, your discomfort could be related to your ongoing constipation that can present like this, but proper investigation is necessary to rule out other potential cause of pain/discomfort. Stress can certainly be a factor, but I don't think we can make any conclusion without proper investigation.

Please let me know if you have any specific question for me.
