Sure: No doubt constipation can cause feelings of fullness, w some cramping and nausea. Now, why are you constipated. Are you well hydrated/Are you eating right, with whole grains, fruits, and vegetables? Are you getting enough exercise?Did you start any new medications, especially pain meds? Talk to your doctor. Good luck.
