Not related.: These do not sound related. Squishy sound in head is likely coming from sinus or eustachian tube. This would not have been affected by anything less than pretty serious trauma. Gurgling is just that - sound of liquids and air being moved around in the intestines.

Headaches need help: Headaches and head pain are usually related. See your primary care doctor for work up. Also see an osteopathic physician to check your alignment of your neck and head, as the roller coaster ride could have caused a misalignment of certain neck vertebrae that have relationship to the vagus nerve pathway that have some gut connections.
