In brief: Not simple answer

The differential diagnosis for that complaint is long, so those kinds of specific diagnoses can only be made by doing specialized testing.
Suggest you go see a Gastrenterologist to sort out the real possibilities before you wind up having a bunch of expensive tests done with no definitive answer and treatment solution...
