Hello and welcome to HCM
Dull ache on the left (left side of abdomen, I assume) can be due to any problem of underlying structures like stomach, spleen, lower lobes of liver, pancreas, large intestine or some localized muscular pain.

First and foremost you need to get an ultrasound abdomen done.
In case you are havng associated chest pain, burning sensation, fullness or bloating; it could be due to indigestion.
As you have mentioned that you suffer from constipation, this pain could be associated with it. To get rid of constipation, drink a lot of water and have plenty of fibre in your diet (salads). Avoid refined food items in diet.
But first get ultrasond done and let me know the findings.

Thanks and take care
