I believe my liver is making stomach-like growling and gurgling sounds. I note that the noise is coming from just under my right rib cage. It's even palpable. Is this something serious I need to have checked out? Does it sound like a liver issue and if so, what?
Also, it seems to happen only when I'm seated. There is no pain involved, either. What are some possibilities?
i doubt it's your liver, it's probably your colon or stomach. quite possibly IBS or an allergy to lactose and/or gluten. best thing to do is get an xray and ultrasound and follow up with an upper gi and colonoscopy to rule out anything serious. in the meantime try adjusting your diet to see if that helps.
