You're constipated. Stool is backed up in your colon that you need to get rid of. Try using a glycerin suppository for two day only . Then increase your water intake and slowly increase your fiber intake over a week. Try taking a brisk walk after meals for about 30 minutes and that should help to kick in peristalsis to give the urge to go sit on the toilet to move your bowels. If you do this everyday after eating it will keep your bowels moving everyday and you get constipated.

Re: bad pain in abdomen when i breathe in

Similar symptoms to yours showed I had Diverticulitis.
I was told that pain in the upper left under the ribs can relate to Diverticulitis.
I also had alternating Diareah/Constipation. A Colonoscopy will reveal if this is the cause.
As you are sport active you could have strained yourself but that would not cause the Bowel Issue. See your Dr if it continues. Solofelix.
