reasons?

in last 3 months, i get bloated and have a lot of gas and dull pain in the right quadrant.
a few hours after meals, it is as if i am pregnant.
from my ct scan no problem in the organs in the right side quadrant (gallbladder, pancreas etc).
what is the reason for excessive bloating and gas?
i get constipated also.
after i go toilet, in general i feel a relief.
sometimes, i have to go to toilet many times.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Your symptoms could be due to many causes. We have to work towards ruling out the causes step by step. It could be gall bladder related, like gallbladder dyskinesia, which can cause your symptoms. Your symptoms could sometimes be due to hypothyroidism. It can cause constipation and bloating. A third possibility is colon disorders like inflammatory bowel disorders. You may need a HIDA scan, colonoscopy and thyroid profile to rule out these conditions. If no cause is detected, then it could be irritable bowel syndrome.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
