In brief: Can be...

People who are constipated (or have gas) can definitely have aches and pains in their abdomen.
Usually these pains are transient and go away once you have a bowel movement. Work on hydrating with water, fiber, prunes, lots of fruits and vegetables. If pain is getting worse or you start vomiting (rare with simple constipation), go see your doctor!
