I understand your concern.
At your age, indigestion and flatulence is common and you have to deal with it very meticulously. You have irregular and hard bowels with development of gas. I would suggest you the following-

Modify your diet. Avoid fatty food. Take more fresh fruits and vegetables. Take small frequent meals.
Try to do exercise if possible. Walking for a few minutes in brisk pace will do for you. It enhances metabolism.
You can take tab pantoprazole-levosulpiride once daily before breakfast for 1month.
You can take lactobacillus XXXXXXX twice daily for 15days.
You can take syrup lactulose 20ml before sleep for 5days then when needed.
Reduce weight if you are overweight or obese.
Control blood pressure or sugar if you have any.
You can consult your doctor for prescription of the above.
