vibration in lower bowel area

I know this is weird but it is happening. I have been having a vibration sensation in my lower bowel area for several days. Feels like I have a motor turning on and off periodically. Anyone ever experienced this happening to them???

Re: vibration in lower bowel area

Our 17 year old daughter has this a lot and she calls it "hungry bum"...she describes it as though her stomach is growling like it's hungry.

She has just recently been diagnosed with Familial Polyposis(FAP). She has multiple polyps in her stomach and large intestine. She will be going in shortly to have her colon removed. I'm not saying this to scare you at all but this is just one of her symptoms which is accompanied by rectal bleeding with most of her BM's.

Re: vibration in lower bowel area

Sounds to me like simple intestinal movement. I can literally SEE and FEEL my colon moving about at times, especially when lying on my back. If a person is fairly thin, this is easier to do.

Abdominal rumblings are generally normal and what a doctor hopes to hear with his/her stethoscope. It's usually when there are no "sounds" that there's cause for concern.

If this is bothering you, just go see your family doctor and have him/her listen for a minute. That should reassure you that there is nothing amiss. Our bodies can make some pretty strange sounds, etc., and most of it is perfectly "normal." Above all, don't worry!
