Hi there. I am new here but searching for answers!! Since June my stomach has been making horrible rumbling noises! VERY loud at times. Quite embarrassing!! Sometimes I feel bloated and a bit uncomfortable but for the most part just make the noise. It doesn't matter if I eat or am hungry. My PA did some blood work and decided it was just food passing through my system after eating or just air when no food was inside. Does anyone have any suggestions?? I have started on probiotic acidophilus and digestive enzymes but it really has not helped a whole lot. This is causing my a lot of stress and anxiety and has caused my to avoid social situations! Thanks for your help and God bless you!
I am going to ask a very embarrasing question now, so please forgive me. Do you pass lots of smelly wind as well? As if someone has a lactose intolerance, they have lots of stomache wind as the body can't break it down and it is turned into smelly gas before it leaves the body? They quite often have upset tummies as well.
It's probably no big deal, but grumbling sounds and a bloated feeling are symptoms of Celiac Disease, which can be easily checked through blood work and then perhaps a biopsy if needed. It's a long shot, but if you're still uncomfortable in a couple more months, getting the blood work done might be a good idea.
