Why do I have bathroom problem

I have problem I'm emotional distress, depression, stress, anxiety and  can't sleep and loss of appetite and I get pain on left side rib cage because of gas pain and when I can't finish my stool in the morning and I'm Asian.  Usually we don't go only mornings but I have labored breathing my mom thinks anxiety and my mom friend think emotional distress.  When I can't finish bowel I constipated and my ear get numb like feeling and how can I recover all this

For the emotional distress, you need to see a therapist, psychologist, counselor, or psychiatrist.  You could use therapy and maybe medication, depending on how bad it is.

For the constipation, drink more water and eat more fiber.  This can be in the form of fruits (other than apples and bananas), vegetables, and whole grains.  Cut down on white bread, noodles, and dairy.  Too much meat can be constipating as well.  You can also get a fiber supplement at the drug store.  I use the CVS version of benefiber, which is dextrin powder.  It stirs into color or hot drinks or soft foods, and is tasteless.  Regular use should help with the gas pains.  Too much caffeine can also upset your gut, so it's something to think about.  Too much coffee + not enough sleep is enough to give me gut cramps, gas, and diarrhea.  Anxiety also won't help your digestive system, so getting that under control might help as well.

There are also gummy fiber supplements that add fiber automatically to your diet and are not active like a laxative but do move things along.  Modern diets have removed a lot of roughage and fiber that humans evolved to need, so replacing fiber with a supplement is not a bad idea if you cannot do it by diet alone.  Trying to eat an all-whole grain diet with no fats or sugars is difficult to do consistently in this world of processed and refined foods.

If you like kimchee, go for it.  It will increase your vegetable intake all by itself.  I think if you read up online about appropriate diet, you'll find lots of suggestions.  Gummy fiber supplements look like gummy vitamins and you find them on the same shelf at the store.  If you generally eat a lot of Korean food, you'll probably get a pretty good diet as long as you watch the salt or soy.
