In brief: IBS

Abdominal bloating is considered to be a subset of irritable bowel syndrome but you will need to be evaluated for other causes like reflux, gallstones, pancreatic problems, gyn problems if female and kidney problems.
Once work up is negative options are probiotics, antispasmodics and a new treatment with antibiotic rifaximin. Consult your doctor for options.
