I wouldn't worry too much, you have these signs already for 2 years and if it would be something serious, I don't think during night or when you are exercising would you feel better. However, the colonoscopy, ct scan and blood work are quite old, so you should repeat in my opinion at least the blood work and the colonoscopy (especially knowing that you have chronic constipation).
