is straining during constipation dangerous

I've had bad constipation these past couple of weeks and when I just went to the toilet I had to strain really hard to go and my lower abdomen was bubbling, and I got like a muscle pain near my bladder. Is straining too hard dangerous? And can anyone give me any tips on what kind of stuff to eat to help constipation? Thank you.
