does constipation cause small, tender, very painful spots above and to right of navel?

Probably not: Chronic constipation usually does not cause specific painful spots. You get more of a crampy/achy feeling. Point tenderness is usually something else. Unclear if the tender spots are on skin surface or deep in abdomen. If on skin, could be infection. Deeper down sounds more like swollen lymph nodes, amongst other things that can occur in your belly.
