Exclamation I NEED HELP FAST

I start my senior year of high school in about 3 days and i have a horrible problem with my stomach making those stupid noises. I was wanting to know if ANYONE knows a solution to this problem as in something i can take before i go to school or even before class. I have heard that Gas X, Imodium, and Tums have stopped the noises, but i have not tried it. Please somebody help me!! Thanks

What kinds of noises? Do you have gas? Are you farting? Or is more like rumbling like you are hungry? Do you have any Bowel problems?

I am not farting and I dont have gas. It is just my stomach is growling even though I am not hungry. I dont have any bowel problems.

It's probably just normal (although exaggerated) sounds from your bowels. I don't believe they are dangerous or harmful, but they can be annoying. Sometimes people get these along with cramps and spasms. If you haven't, I suggest you go see a doctor just to rule out possibility of any problems (borborygmus is sometimes associated with diseases like Crohn's). If not, you can still get a temporary prescription. An anticholinergic/antispasmodic would probably calm down your smooth muscle contractions... Levbid (hyoscyamine) was prescribed for me once with my IBS, and it also totally eliminated audible noises from my stomach/bowel area.
