Not likely: Would think of other causes. Gallbladder pain is generally upper abdomen, right upper quadrant, refers to back, associated nausea, vomiting. Doesn't sound like you.

Unlikely: Gallbladder disease is unlikely to cause gurgling of any kind. Pain from gallbladder disease is usually in the right upper or upper central part of the abdomen and often radiates to the back or shoulder.

Not likely: The location & description of your pain does not sound like a gallbladder attack.These attacks typically occur in the right-upper or upper-midline after eating( esp fatty foods), last for an hour or more, are assc. W/nausea +/- vomiting, and may radiate into the back.What you are describing sounds more like indigestion or irritable bowel. I recommend that you see your doctor for formal evaluation.
