In brief: Be careful ibuprofen

Ibuprofen if not taken with food or milk can cause gastritis, and irritate your stomach.
So make sure you aren't taking it on an empty stomach. Food allergies can also cause bloating, and slight weight gain. You may have some referred pain to your ribs from your stomach, and from constipation. and gas to your pelvis. See your doctor for further evaluation, and abdominal exam.
