welcome to healthcaremagic
please consult surgeon and get examined for any abdominal positive finding
in gi xray a trendelenberg view is required to rule out hiatus hernia
upper gi endoscopy will help in diagnosis of any stomach duodenal problem
whole abdomen usg will help any abnormal mass there in abdomen
get examined and hope your problem solved soon

General & Family Physician Dr. Pragnesh Vachharajani's  Response
Hi,thanks for query.What you could have is irritable bowel syndrome.In this condition you get frequent abdominal pains and sometimes associated with constipation or diarrhea.In this condition all the tests will be normal.Take light diet and avoid junk food.Your mental status means anxiety or good mood will have impact on symptoms.
Please talk to your doctor.
wishing you good health.
