In brief: Partly

Sure as heck sounds like you are having some sx's suggestive of gerd, but you also probably have some degree of irritable bowel syndrome.
You just seem to have a two'fer. Not unusual in the young patient like you. Dietary changes, smaller feedings, nicotine and caffeine elimination should help.Keep a diet diary, it will help u and ur doc determine the best course o action.

In brief: Quite possible

Cough after eating sounds like possibly gerd related, but bloating and gas are not so typical.
Gerd can cause what's known as cough variant asthma, which is caused by stomach acid irritating your airway. Not herd related...
