Could be a form if ibs.
Could also be celiac disease or small bowel bacterial overgrowth. Could also be your diet......High gas formers such as broccoli, cauliflower, etc.

Agree. Have your doctor send celiac disease panel, and get lactulose ( not Lactose) hydrogen and methane breath test to see if you have SIBO ( small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). Avoid foods that cause gas. Try lactose free diet .

In brief: Hypersensitivity

Hypersensitivity of the enteric nervous system manifesting as dyspepsia or visceral hypersensitivity would be most likely.
Non-gi causes such as musculoskeletal should also be considered. Bloating is often times a difficult symptom to investigate and manage, as you can attest.
