Very embarrasing problem - stomach noises. PLEASE HELP!
Please help me as I am in complete ruins. My stomach constantly makes noises. Usually, early in the morning prior to a bowel movement (I usually have my movement around 930AM) its at its peak. Just nonstop noises, vibrations and when the clock approaches 930AM, I have an urge to use the restroom.
Now the problem is that I'm in college, and this semester I have classes way before my 930AM movement. I'll get up at 630AM and will try with all my might to get my bowels moving but nothing will happen. Then, just as soon as I get to class at 830 (730 on fridays) I'll feel pressure on my stomach and the noises begin. The noises are SO embarrassing! I can't concentrate on my school work, I'm so embarrassed by the noises! I constantly try to cough and shift around in my seat but it doesn't help at all.
This problem has been going on for the last 8 months I would say. Also, my bowel habits don't seem normal. I'll have much thinner, stringy and watery stool. I haven't had the "normal" kind since early freshman year of college (i just started sophomore this year). I've also felt the need to belch a lot,very deeply.
Oh and also at night time its really bad....stomach keeps vibrating, making noises...makes it hard to sleep.
I've gone to the gasterontologists twice and have been recommended Levbid and Zantac 150. I've been using them for a week, but to no luck!!
someone please help me! I was an honor student and my life was going great and now I'm actually considering dropping out of school because of this problem! And its so embarrassing I can't even discuss it with my parents! (I went to the gasterontologists on my own and paid myself to avoid letting my parents know about this embarrassing situation)
