Question IBS??? or ???

Hi there, for the past few months I have been experiencing lots of stomach/intestine rumblings and noises. Some are VERY loud. There is sometimes bloating and a bit uncomortable, but not too often, just usually the noise. It doesn't matter if I am hungry or eaten the noises come at their own will-so to speak! It is very embaraasing and I have avoided social situations due to this problem. My PA did some blood work and decided it it probably just noises that are made during digestion and when no food is in there it is just air moving about. I do not have diahheria (SP)and for the most part no constipation, only occasionally.I am trying digestive enzymes and probiotic acidophilus but has not really helped. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks for your time and God bless you all!

It doesn't sound like IBS so I'll go with the "???" choice.
Seriously though, have you tried to correlate the rumbling with any food that you are digesting poorly.
My first thought is MILK. It sounds most like a lactose intolerance.
Does a BIG glass of milk on an empty stomach cause WAR inside?
If it's not lactose then try foods one at a time (on an empty stomach) and see if you can isolate it.
Common offenders are wheat, citrus, unripe fruit.
