: For the past two year, my stomach & intestines make loud, loud gurgling, bubbling noises all of the time. Happens when I eat, & when I don't (can't find any correlation w/what I eat). Seems to get worse when I lay down (but maybe I notice it more then). I also feel something bubbling up my throat periodically throughout the day & when I lay down (don't feel any heartburn, though). Also, have flatulence frequently. Gets worse at my menstrual cycle time. Sometimes have diarrea.
: My primary care doc has called it IBS. Saw an ENT who said it was acid reflux -- tried Prilosec & Prevacid = neither helped. Have had bowel tests for blood & parasites & an upper GI. All was clear.
: Does anyone have any clue what this could be? It's horrible having your stomach constantly making noises & movement.
Tina, I have these EXACT symptoms to the TEE! My stomach has been giving me so much greif. I've also had a upper gi and stool samples, and a ultra sound, and all came back showing nothing. I go for a barium enema in 2 wks. Doc told me ibs as well, but its just so hard to know.
why dont we keep each other posted, and try to get to the bottom of it.
