I have stomach pain when I am hungry. In addition I have constipation too. Does constipation create gas that cause pain? Or is it a symptom of ulcer

Unclear cause: Ulcers typically cause upper abdominal pain and could be associated with nausea and/or GI bleeding. Pain from constipation is typically in the lower abdomen.
