Yes, these symptoms are a matter of concern and can not be overlooked.
Pain in the stomach area; along with bloating can be a feature of stomach ulcers, which at be complicated with the presence of reflux.
Another possibility is to look for any enlargement of organs in the tummy like, enlarged spleen (as you mentioned) or lymph nodes giving these pressure symptoms.
