Air bubbles stuck under left rib cage, x-ray done, taking laxatives, get less constipated

I continually get air bubbles stuck under my left rib cage that I am able to control. I did have an x-ray done on it before. My doctor told me to start taking laxatives to help with my feces blockage, but that never stop me from getting the bubbles stuck. It helped me get less constipated of course but that was about it. The bubbles are more just annoying then discomfort.
