Brief Answer:
Bacterial infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Gas and bloating can be caused by a diet. However, as the most of the gas in digestive tract is produced by bacteria, some mild bacterial infection or lac of good intestinal bacteria can be the reason. This is more probable especially that there is no difference in eaten food type.
That is why I suggest you to start with probiotic intake. You may add some yoghurt to your diet as well. Try to avoid any sweets like chocolate, carbonated drinks, fatty foods.
If this wont help, stool test should be done.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

I have been having GI issues for about 2 months now. At first, there was pressure when I went to the bathroom, but that has subsided. Now, my stomach feels bloated and full of gas when I wake up and sometimes throughout the day. Went to urgent care and they did an X-Ray of the intestines and stool sample but found nothing. I'm removing the lactose and taking an over the counter pro-biotic. Going to get blood tests at the end of the week. Could be neurological as I just finished grad school, no job and am entering the military at age 31. Any suggestions?
