Thank you for your consult at Let me know his associated features along with mentioned.

Does he have relief in abdominal pain after defecation?

Does he have pulsating type of headache?

Has he undergone biopsy of large intestine ulcer?

With the available described details, there appears to be high possibility of Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Although presence of ulcer in large intestine shows organic cause for all symptoms and cause must be evaluated.

There exist gut-brain axis in human beings and some sort of stress & mental worry may affect gastrointestinal tract motility.

Abdominal heaviness with constipation favors decreased gastrointestinal motility with variations according to mental status.

You should consult with internal medicine specialist / gastroenterologist and should go for thorough check up.

He should also go for complete hemogram, blood sugar, thyroid function test, serum amylase, liver function test.

He should also go for endoscopy with biopsy of 2nd part of duodenum.

Treatment depends on exact diagnosis.

Meanwhile, he should continue Proton pump inhibitors, gut anxiolytics, mebeverine.

He should also consult with psychiatrist and should take tricyclic antidepressants.

Take care,
Hope this helps, please feel free to discuss further.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
