In brief: Think diet!

Bloating or intestinal pain are almost always related to diet.
Many people are severely constipated if consuming the average the American diet. Sometimes there r certain food intolerances such as dairy or wheat that can cause this. A simple x-ray by your primary care physician can determine your degree of constipation. Elimination diets can help determine what foods could be causing the bloating
