Lots of things: This could be all kinds of things. The moral is, you probably need to see a GI specialist. A list of some of the common causes are...Reflux, ulcers, inflammatory bowel, irritable bowel, hiatal hernia, gall bladder issues, etc. It's probably nothing serious, but it is worth getting checked out.

FODMAP: Agree with Dr. S. One more thing to consider is intolerance to certain food that produce gas.
