Question Left side is gurgling

I have had problems on and off for a year with what i think is my left lung gurgling or what seems to be bubbling feeling. It happens regardless if i breath or pause my breathing when i feel it. When it is worse as it is now, it aches into my back. I feel that lifting my left arm over my head seems to stretch it out a little and breifly gain some relief from the aching pain that shoots up and down my left back.
I used to think it was my heart, but i can feel the movement of gurgling and it is to my left side sort of up under the side my left breast/ribs.
Everytime i mention it to my family Dr. he puts me on an anti inflamatory and tells me it is skeletel muscles. Maybe that is what it is however no one can explain the gurgling and sever shooting pains up and down my back.

Re: Left side is gurgling

Did your hubby have any other symptoms leading up to it? Mine comes and goes but has been more bothersome over the past year. AFter my 3rd child i have troubles sleeping on my left side it is as if i loose my breath or lack of oxygen. I get a funny feeling, my heart starts to speed up and then get light headed if i dont roll over onto my right side i am affraid i might actually pass out.
I did call the specialist but they first want my family Dr. to do X-rays before they will take me, I do have an appointment scheduled for this Friday.

Thanks

Let us know how that appointment goes.
Try this: when you feel the gurgling again, put your hand over the spot where it gurgles...do you feel anything?
Do you have any other medical conditions?
