DX w/IBS, GERD, gastritis.The only time my stomach feels normal is if it's empty. Food/drinks & exercise cause reflux or ULQ pain. Is this IBS typical?

In brief: Possible.

It's hard to say what's typical for IBS since it becomes a diagnosis when we've excluded all other things.
This may be what is typical for IBS for you, but not for another individual. It certainly falls within the spectrum of symptoms for IBS. If the symptoms are getting worse however, it's time to go back to your gastroenterologist.
