Brief Answer:
You should be investigated.

Detailed Answer:
Pain to the Left side of the abdomen can be mostly due to Ureteric stone.
It will be confirmed by Ultrasound abdomen.
It is not due to constipation.
The drugs that you have mentioned do not cause abdominal pain there.
Please consult your doctor and get an Ultrasound abdomen.
If you come back with Ultrasound report, I will clarify further.
If it is normal, then it could be musculo skeletal pain.
Nothing to worry.
Wish you good health.
