Not really...: Gurgling noises are common, and are often related to the type of food/drink consumed, and to some degree based on a given person's intestinal motility; but no, a noisy stomach is not a typical sign of an ulcer.

No: These sounds are normal.

Trauma: Can happen from getting hit in the stomach, being in a car accident while wearing a seat belt, repetitive vomiting or retching. Sometime acid irritation or gastritis could cause streaks of damage rather than a discrete pit (ulcer). Then again there is the common cause of sword swallowing :-).

You get examined.: This type of pain you describe probably is not an ulcer. You need to have your doctor check this out.

Not necessarily: There are several other possible causes, including reflux. Have the issue evaluated by a GI specialist.

Pain: Ulcer presentation is usually more than just pain - indigestion, nausea, heartburn, pain with relation to food ingestion. Although, if you are taking Ibuprofen and other nsaids, the chance of ulcer is definitely higher. Stop those. Try zantac (ranitidine) or priosec, see if it helps.
