Very loud gurgling/sloshing abdominal sound below bottom left rib area when pressed?

For the past 7 months, I've been having this constant bloating/gurgling on the left side only. The loud sloshing sound can be heard when pressed on or just breathing deeply. The discomfort feels like a knot of gas stuck in that area 24/7. I also have acid reflux, though not sure if it's related to the lower bloating issues. Upper endoscopy, colonoscopy, CT, gastric emptying were OK. None of the medications tried help much: bentyl, rifaximen, zoloft, probiotics, ibgard, miralax, etc. I would say my stools are mostly drier, harder to pass. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas what the cause is I'd appreciate it, I've been miserable every day. Does anyone else with "IBS" have this constant loud gas sounds? I feel like there're missing something
