Could IBS cause bad breath?

For years Ive been bloated, gassy and cramped. I cant gain weight. I wake up with gas and bad taste in my mouth. I have no sinus infections but I always have bad breath ( I brush and floss daily). Ive done almost every test possible and there all clear. My doctor says its IBS and there's nothing he can do, to help (which I find hard to believe). Im a 43 yr old male 5' 11" and 140lbs.
I calculated my diet at approx. 2800-3000 calories a day. My job is not physically demanding and Ive stopped weight training.
Any help would be just great, thanks.

HI
Well come to HCM
Thank for asking
I really appreciate your concern, the given history could be suggestive of acid peptic disease, if I would be doctor of this case then I would try to treat this case with Tab Rabiprazole 20 mg with Tab Domperidone 10 mg once in day, try avoid taking onion garlic spicy oily food drink more water, condition could be associated with IBS and it is the functional kind of disorders so try to change the life style and diet also, stay away from the stress, have more alkali diet like fresh leafy vegetables, hope this information helps.
I find this answer helpful

My 30+ year old son has never been able to belch. He often bloats, has extremely bad breath at times, and has digestive issues and tested for IBS etc without any firm diagnosis. He has been on this very restrictive diet which has helped to a certain extent but we do wonder if the fact he cannot belch, is not the initiating factor to many of his problems. Could a small surgery to stretch the (?) spincter muscle leading to his stomach help in any way?

I’ve tried so many different remedies to get rid of bad breath. I’ve had tons of dental work done, had sinus surgery, thyroid surgery tried so many different mouthwashes. It seems the odor is worse after I eat. I take food enzyme pills to help my food digest. I also take probiotics. I’ve had a colonoscopy and the procedure with the camera down my stomach. Dr didn’t see anything. What could be causing this embarrassing odor?

Hi- This morning I woke up with a sore throat and runny nose. I also had a swollen gland on the right side of my neck under my jaw. It s not sore, and feels hard to touch. Also during the day the swelling goes down occasionally (after a saline gargle etc.). Should I be worried about these symptoms? Or is this just a simple common cold?
