Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the consultation at my virtual clinic!
I have carefully worked through your case, and can well realize your health worries. Being your physician, I will take care all of your medical concerns today and will put my best efforts to get you out of this situation.


PROBABILITY:-
You have this shifting pain due to constipation and this is the sole reason for your trouble.

DIET MODIFICATIONS:-
You need to take a healthy and balanced diet with plenty of fruits, salads and green leafy vegetables.
No processed red meat.
No western diet.
No junk and spicy foods, fried and fast foods.
No energy drinks, beverages, caffeinated drinks and chocolates.
Take plenty of water and add citrucel dietary fiber supplement.

LIFESTYLE MODIFICATIONS:-
Remain physically active as much as you can.


Medication guide:-
Lactulose syrup 4 TSF at night.
Pantoprazole + Levosulpiride before breakfast.
Adult Glycerin suppositories if severe constipation.


If you feel nothing is helping you anymore, that will be the high time to consult a Gastroenterologist for in-person and thorough evaluation. He may go for a colonoscopy and will rule out important causes of constipation. Maybe there is some problem with the rectum or colon.


Hope I answered all of your questions. Let me know if you have further clinical concerns or doubts. I will be more than happy to get back to you with expert opinion.
