what could cause me to have gas, bloating, stomach aches, and constipation?

Possibly: Excess fiber and not enough fluids. Remember, anything with caffeine or alcohol dehydrates and therefore creates an imbalance of fiber and fluids. Drink 80-100 ounces caffeine free/alcohol free fluid daily and eat a high fiber diet. If you are eating properly you do not need fiber supplements as this may cause an excess fiber and can lead to gas pains, cramping and constipation.
