    It is possible that this is a small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) but this can only be confirmed with the appropriate diagnostic investigation by your doctor. There is no reason to assume this just yet as many conditions can account for your symptoms. Chronic acid reflux (GERD), air swallowing, food intolerance, inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) may also cause many of these symptoms.

    You should see your doctor and report these symptoms. Take note of when it started, what seems to make it worse or better and any other associated symptoms that may also be present.
