In brief: The list goes on

This list can be fairly lengthy and therefore a detailed history, physical, and supporting labs/x-rays are needed to hone in.
Let's list: hiatal hernia, gastric outlet obstruction, bowel obstruction, gall bladder disease, gastroparesis, stomach ulcers, tumors, and pancreatic pathology.

In brief: Stomach versus colon

The stomach partly lies on the spleen on the left side and if lazy, we call it gastroparesis, it would cause regurgitation and gassy feeling.
This is specially likely if you are diabetic. But the colon could also be a suspect. If this is not just a single episode that passed, i would seek medical evaluation. A scope or ultrasound may eventually be needed.
