Unhappy is it just constipation??

3 days ago I woke up with cramping in my lower abdomen. It went away after a few hours and a few trips to the bathroom. The next day I woke up with the same thing, but was unable to have a BM the entire day. This has happened to be before so I wasn't worried about it. Today I woke up with pain in my stomach. It felt like heartburn, but much worse. I took some Tums, but no relief. I have felt the urge to have a BM the whole day, but haven't been able to. I also have bloating, pressure and abdomenal cramps. I took some zantac and it seemed to help with the heartburn (or indigestion...whatever it was) and took some Gas X for the bloating and pressure. It seemed to help a little bit, but I still feel the urge to have a BM and now its becoming painful. Has this happened to anyone? And is it just constipation?
