      Yes it can also be a lack of water too

      Are you drinking enough fluids.

      Gueglings can come and go for me whether in relaxed or when I'm not good I pets only feel gurhling s unless acids coming up are not bad

      Are digestive system is like a vlocano in many ways so gurglings can be normal too.

      Pain under the right rib can be IBS and also if your passing wind a lot it could be just something has disagreed with you our you could just have a tummy bug how long as it been going on for

    I think when the stomach makes bubbling noises and squeaks it means its having trouble digesting something (for me dairy and beans do it) and a lot of wind.

    If the bubbling continues I get diarohea later or acid reflux because the stomach is producing too much acid trying to digest stuff that it cannot.

    I did lots of food tests. I drank skimmed milk and the bubbling started within an hour - its lactose causing the problem. Some dairy has a lot of lactose other dairy, like cheddar chees and parmisan have little. So I can eat some cheeses but not others and yoghurt is almost always a problem. Also they put skimmed milk into many dips and sauces and it is OFTEN a problem because it has tons of lactose in it.

    Hi tanya

    I suffered for years with the same thing as well as really excruciating pain in my stomach and chest.  Two things helped me: firstly I went on the Harcombe diet and then I found a good reflexologist.  Don't know how they both worked but I no longer have the problem.  I recommended the Harcombe diet to my friend's husband who was on tablets for reflux.  He no longer takes the tablets and he lost weight at the same time.  Hope this helps.
