Dull pain on left of navel

Dear community,
This is my first time posting here,
I am 40yo thin male without illness or medication.
I started having dull abdominal pain on left of my navel starting about 58 hours ago as I was speedily overindulging on a foot-long Subway, bought 4 hrs earlier before consumption.

[B]Immediate symptoms:[/B]
Stomach discomfort, fullness feeling
After completing meal, I rushed to toilet, passed gas and liquid motion as in the case of food poisoning.

[B]Continuing symptoms:[/B]
Lingering Dull pain left of navel for 58 hrs.
Eating normally
Not passing motion or urge for it since the last purging, 58 hrs ago.
Tried and passed 3-4 tiny stools only.
No constipation issues previously.
Passing gas and urine normally.

What is the pain, do i need to consult a doctor or any over the counter medicine to loosen any stools if necessary?

Thankyou to all, looking into my concern.

If it is allergy to something that you have eaten then the symptoms should subside when the food is eliminated completely. Stomach pains and gas can indicate hyperacidity or gastritis which can be easily management with use of antacids. However if the stomach pain is severe then it is necessary to rule out stomach infection. A stool examination can be done. Consult your Doctor.
