Welcome to e health forum.

It is possible that your symptoms can be due to chronic constipation.

For the time being, you can try over the counter laxatives and stool softners to relieve your symptoms. But for long term improvement of your symptoms lifestyle and dietary changes as suggested below should be undertaken.

Constipation in adults is due to a stressed lifestyle with lack of proper eating habits ,having more junk and processed food, rather than freshly prepared whole foods, low intake of dietary fiber and inadequate amounts of fluids.

You might consider adding enough fiber in your diet. Vegetables with high-fiber content (peas, beans, apricots, prunes, peaches, pears, plums, spinach), fresh fruits, dried fruits, and whole wheat, bran, or oatmeal cereals are excellent sources of fiber. To reap the benefits of fiber, drink plenty of fluids to help pass the stool.

Include a lot of whole grain bread, corn bran, cereals, buns, muffins, bran flakes, whole wheat cereals, whole grain pasta, and brown rice in your daily diet.
Whole grains - help to enhance the digestive system.

Regular exercise (abdominal contraction exercises and leg raises) are also important in establishing regular normal bowel movements.

Follow healthy eating habits including eating at regular intervals and avoiding skipping of meals.

Taking time to have a bowel movement when you need to. Visit the toilet for 15 minutes in the morning, even if you are unable to have a bowel movement. This relaxes and stimulates your digestive system.

Following the measures suggested above might be very helpful to resolve your condition.

In case, the above measures are not helping, consulting a doctor for a examination and rule out obstructive defecation disorders.

I hope this helps.
