I figured FODMAPS are the cause of SIBO, acid reflux and constipation. Am I right to make this generalization or could there be other reasons/causes for the combination of symptoms?

I would disagree with that generalization. The main thing with FODMAPs is that they cause gas, not the symptoms you describe.
