What causes excessive wind and very little bowel movement?

Hello. I believe i may have something wrong with my stomach. Im barely move my bowels, maybe once every two days, and when i do its very little. Im only passing gas all of the time. There is a small point i can feel on my stomach, its like a stabbing pain when i eat. I think it may be a hole. Any ideas and/or suggestions?

Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
You have a problem of constipation hence you are able to pass stool daily. This causes fecoliths to remain in the colon for a long time and thus may cause pain, tenderness, gases, bloating, feeling uneasiness and so on.
I would like to advise you the following:
Consult your Doctor for clinical evaluation, examination and investigations of X-ray of abdomen to find the status of fecoliths in colon and any other problems.
Get the stool, blood and urine tested.
If fecolith are present it is always better to get the water+soap enema to clear the colon of fecoliths. This helps to get a proper motion daily with help of stool softeners, laxative and thus have regular bowel movements.
Also change the food habits to increase fiber contents in diet; avoid foods and beverages that you must have noticed to cause constipation in your case.
Plenty of fluids orally helps further.
Avoid stress and anxiety.
maintain these things and you will be fine.
I find this answer helpful
