    Stomach making really weird noises...

    Past 2 or 3 weeks my stomach keeps making this weird sounds..
    It's sort of churning and a draining sort of sound? I don't know how to describe it... It's not because I'm hungry, it happens all the time, even after I eat... I'm finding it really embarrassing aswell as it is quiet loud and if I'm in a lesson when it's quiet, thats when it decides to make a noise and it's horrible!

    Has anyone had any experience from this? Is it something to do with my digestion or something? I don't have a clue whats going on...
    I'd talk to my mum about it but then she'll just go, "You're not eating enough" and that grinds my gears so...

    Any thoughts?
    Thank youuu (:

    I get it if I eat too much lactose (I'm lactose intolerant) because I can't digest it properly.

    I had this problem when I was younger and in school, and no one seems to know what it was and I found it a very embrassing problem.
    But by making a few small changes in my diet such as eating brown bread, do not eat white at all expect for lik satuday when you don't have school
    and I had weekabix for breakfast and I did a poo every eveing and viola
    the noise was cured. I assuming I have a intolerance to some ingredient in white bread.

    I stil to this day eat brown bread, I only eat white where a brown option is unavailabe!

    So try these changes for bout 3-4 weeks and then report back to his thread and let me know. if it sorted your problem out

    when was it the last time you've been on the can? those noises are a symptom of ileus. Doesn't mean it has to be that, of course.

    I don't really eat bread over the week and I don't think anythings changed over my diet apart from I've started eating sultanas, if that would make a difference?

    And I suppose I went last night? General time really

    Well if and when you do eat bread, just try the brown anyway.
    Could also be trapped wind, though i doubt it actually.

    Well try moving ur chair around nosily when you know ur stomach is about to turn or try sucking on polo mints, not chewing gum as that causes gas.

    You should see the doctor, and ask to be tested for ileus, Tell them your finding it hard to learn because you can't relax in class becuase your worried about ur stomach making noises.
    It is a seriously embrassing problem, otherwise apply to be on the embrassing bodies programme, they are genuises!!!!!

    I was thinking, could it have something to do with stress?
    My brother had some stomach-type related thing a month or two ago because he was really stressed...
    I do keep getting myself worked up and feeling the pressure, could that have something to do with it?

    you should maybe find a doctor/allergy clinic and get checked out for it. My sister has this a lot, because she has something similar to lactose intolerance (happens to her when eating Gluten rich products too). Keep in mind that intolerances can develop and even vanish again. Maybe try to keep check which kind of food causes this, especially if you have stomach ache and the runs too.

    I'll speak to my mum and see if she can get me an appointment, sort of avoiding asking her because I'm pretty sure she'll make a jab at my eating habits -_-

    Lots of things are stress related, so it may well be triggered by that..but that still doesn't determine what is actually causing it.

    I have crohn's disease, and when it was active, my stomach made horrendous noises! So loud and like a drain. But crohn's is an extreme possibility. You may find you have an allergy, or IBS. However, docs kept telling me I had IBS, and I had to diagnose myself in the end...at which point I was very ill.

    So I'd suggest having some blood tests done and going from there. Definitely discuss the possibilities with your GP.

    Really sounds like IBS. But as I say, a blood test should help to rule out anything else, or indicate if any further tests are needed.
