Child has bloated stomach and bad breath. What is it?

My 5 year old stomach bloats really bad, all the time. You can see her ribs on her sides. She is not a excellent eater but she eats small portions of food.i have had her tested in the Past and everything came back normal. I know something is wrong because it has been going on, her whole life. I don t know what do to. I m tired of doctors saying its gas when I know it s something else also. Her breathe smells bad also, no matter if she brushes her teeth .
