Abdominal pressure - wind/gas?

I have always had a very active bowel its not unusual for me to go 4 times a day. I also alternate between loose in morning then hard pellet like in evening and as I have been like this for past 20 years its obviously just me.

I always have lots of wind/gas by late afternoon and evening and go through phases of how uncomfortable/painful it can be.

Last week I noticed that the area from my tummy button to my waist line felt very pressured as if somehting was pulling tightly like a corset and it kept moving around from one side to other sometime under belly button then it would be back to waistline. I also had lots of pops, gurgles and explosions!
It isn't painful as such just extrememly uncomfotable and it gets worse when I lay down at night in bed as if stretching out flat makes the pressure worse. I do not have it constantly usually starts in evening. Getting rid of the gas! eases it off.

My Dr examined me and said its just wind moving around and as the bowel inflates it feels tight. I have had clear stool tests for occult blood and tested negative for coeliac disease.

Would liek to know if anyone else can relate to these symptoms?
