Strange Fluttering in Left Part of Stomach

I was wondering if anyone has experienced this before.

For the last three days, I've experienced pronounced fluttering or soft kicking on the left side of my stomach. It's very weird and can be felt by touching my stomach too.

I took a pregnancy test to rule that out and it's come back as not positive. I though it could be worms but that it's very rare to feel them in such a way.

What else could they be? Just to say that I'm not broody at all so it's not phantom pregnancy or an imagined one. Never been pregnant before either.

It could just be excess stomach acid or air in your stomach. The stomach is to the left just under your ribs there. If I don't take my stomach acid medication I get 'kicking' and 'fizzing' type sensations around there, especially at night.

Ok great thank you. It's been three days now so will continue to monitor it and I will take Gaviscon to see if that helps.

Thanks though it's much appreciated.

Trapped air I see my stomach move when I lie down
