In brief: Constipation vs tics

Constipation can make you feel bloated, especially on the lower left quadrant.
Diverticulitis, which is inflammation & infection of diverticulosis, can also make you bloated but usually associated w/pain & fever. If you're female, sometimes ovarian cysts can make you feel bloated. Best to check in w/your family doc for an evaluation. In meantime, eat lots of fiber, drink lots of water & exercise.
