Abdominal pain, fatigue, bad breath, upset stomach, constipation. Any thoughts?

I have had for some time ( a couple of years) pain in my abdomen. This has a lot of different symptoms feeling like wanting to go to the toilet all the time to fatigue, bad breath, upset stomach irregular bowel movements, loose and constipated ( no blood in stools just the occasional tear of rectum which is annoying to say the least.
Last night I had pain like never before from my diaphragm down to navel, due to all the problems I have has I have a high pain tolerance I would say this was about an eight on a scale of 1 to 10 which made me feel so bad it almost forced me to vomit I'm going for a urea breath test and an ultra sound in a few days any thoughts on what I should ask doctor to look for?
Based upon symptoms I'm thinking its possibly a h. Pylori infection however I want to rule out stomach/ bowel cancer and am interested in any information you may have this has gone on for to long in my life and is depressing and would like to know if I'm either dying or curable so I can try have a normal life.

Thanks for writing in

Your information is suggestive of some form of collitis rather than any cancer

Yes you may go for urea test and ultrasound , along with it if practical go for a stool examination

In the mean time avoid contaminated and junk food, take a probiotic for three to four weeks twice a day

Add a OTC antacid and manage stress levels
If used to consuming alcohol and smoking , avoid it strictly

Hope this helps
Do write back in case of concern
Wishing you a healthy life ahead
