Bloated stomach and swollen abdomen

Hello, i hope you can help me with what this is. For the last 4 days my stomach has been SO bloated! And the sides of my stomach, below my ribs feel achy. So does my back. Its not painful but im quite slim and this uncomfortable bloating isnt normal for me. Ive recently had ECG s and found abnormal ECG. But said it might be normal for me. The reason for that was i was gettin chest pain . They told me its costochondritis & anxiety . Im not anxious! Still get chest pain and shoulder blade pain. But this bloating is new. Im only 23/ female and quite healthy. With a good diet. BUt i do smoke. This bloating is very uncomfortable, also (Ahem..) Ive been a little gassy lately and a bit constipated. Is there anything i can do to relieve it. Scared it might be hernia, ulcer or worse. Please Help :(

General & Family Physician 's  Response
At present these symptoms are likely due to acid peptic disease and gastritis.
But I wonder as your ECG is abnormal and you are 23 years and even then they say you are normal.
Even it is costo chondritis and pain is due to gastritis your pain should be re evaluated.
Consult physician and discuss about above points.
