I can't really say whether you have IBS or not. The doctor has to rule that out. Based on your excess gas though, it sounds like a possible bacteria problem. Your acupunturist gave you some good things, the probiotics and digestive enzymes should help with that. Sometimes that takes a while though to start working, give a few days at least. Sugar seems to be the biggest problem with bacteria but it sounds like you don't eat too much but many things can cause overgrowth of bacteria (including antibiotic use).
Belching, fullness and bloating can also point to the possibility of GERD or heartburn so you may want to mention it to your doctor.
