Brief Answer:
Your symptoms indicate IBS...

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

Thank you for following up.

Your symptoms of stomach rumbling and gas are indicative for IBS. That's why you are feeling stomach rumbling on the right vs left.

I advise to:
- drink plenty of water
- try to control stress/anxiety
- follow healthy diet regimen
- take butirric acid medication (Butifar) to ease the symptoms.

Wish fast recovery!
