After eating i can hear squirming noise from my body and feel water like movements in my ribs. Why is this happening ?

I m 19 years old and require some help on this matter. I presume this will be a very poor attempt at an explanation so bare with me, if you eat something with a lot of calories take-aways for example you can sometimes feel or hear squirming noises in your body, which is completely natural. The difference with what I am experiencing can only be known if I was to ask several people but if I gently press into my rib I can feel movement, this always feels like water, which again is natural but it s been like this for the last 6 months or so now. At one point this just used to be the odd day when I had a lot to eat but lately it s daily, even without eating , it s been constantly there and it s starting to worry me a little now. My mother kept saying it ll just be constipation but even after I exercise, drink water and eat fruit it still seems to be there, this only seems to happen in my left rib and not the right, it s weird. Any advice, help thanks.

Hi Dear,
Welcome to HCM.
Our stomach inside abdomen is located under the left rib cage. When you eat something such as take aways, the stomach becomes distended and when you try to press on the ribs on that side it may give the feeling that you are having. It is perfectly normal and you do not have to worry about it. Stop checking it by pressing your ribs.
If you have no other problem, just leave it alone.
