You are having right sided abdomen pain and bloating. Hence constipation like in digestive problems also can lead to pain in abdomen. Second possibility of organic cause like gall bladder stone, liver problem can be ruled out by USG abdomen investigation. If no specific cause found than it might be simple musculoskeletal pain. For bloating you can be prescribed Simethicone tablet or in syrup form. For better digestion fiber supplement can be taken If any specific cause found than treated accordingly. Consult physician for examination with keeping all this in mind.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
