GI virus: You may have eaten something to cause the discomfort and having a bowel movement will help you get it out of your system. Otherwise you may have constipation. If that is the case eat dried fruit such as apricots and prunes and see if that naturally resolves your issues. Drink plenty of water and see your doctor if it does not resolve in a the next few days.
