For the last year and a half I've had pain and gurgling under my right rib. Oddly enough it's most noticeable when I'm washing the dishes or cooking, but is also bad when am in a squat like position with my legs against my chest. The pain often spreads to my back, but always remains under my right rib.
I don't think it can be gallbladder or liver because I don't think they would cause gurgling, but it also doesn't feel like typical stomach gurgles... It's more of a bubbling / popping sensation which can be felt if I place my hand on bottom right rib. It also doesn't seem to be gas related, nor does it seem be improve / worsen if I'm fasted or just eaten.
I had a blood test a few months ago and everything is pretty normal which would again suggest it's not liver or gallbladder. I also took a h. pylori test which came back negative. I'm a thin 30 y/o male who's otherwise relatively good health. I also have no relations with stomach / gallbladder / liver problems.
I know I need to arrange a scan at some point, but with everything that's going on right now I don't want to waste the doctor's time as I've had this for a while now and doesn't seem to be urgent. I've searched the internet many times for explanation for my symptoms, but I'm yet to find anything that's satisfactory. Does anyone have any thoughts about what could be causing my discomfort?
