Noisey Stomach
0

16 posts in this topic

I just wanted to know if anyone else experiences "audible bowel sounds"?

If so, do you know what causes it and should I be worried?

Thank you.

I also have a noisy stomach, I think it's just digestion & nothing to worry about, but that's only a guess.

I did, before going gluten-free. (It took me a while to realize it was gone, since it's not painful, or for me, very loud.) (Note, mine was specifically noise from the intestines, not stomach. My stomach seems to be very shy... ;-) )

I thought it could be digestion too but it started in August 02 when I believe I was in a celiac disease crisis. I thought after going gluten-free the noise would have gone away but it hasn't. I have been gluten-free since Sept 03.

Yes mine is in my intestines, not my stomach and it's pretty loud!

At about 4 every morning I wake up with noisy intestinal sounds. It almost sounds and feels like my food is dropping right through me. I'm new to this, Dec. of this year, so I don't know what it is, but I have it too. Don

Audible bowel sounds are often my first clue that I've had a gluten accident, with diarrhea following the next morning. My intestines are no longer noisy unless I've eaten gluten, though they used to gurgle pretty frequently. My stomach only growls when I'm very hungry!

For me, a noisy stomach is the first sign that I've ingested gluten. It doesn't seem to happen to me under normal circumstances. It's usually followed by bloating and gas.

My intestines are very noisy when I am on gluten. As well as very bloated and I am extremely gassy(and it is very painful). This is one of the first things to go away when I am gluten-free, and one of the first to return with a gluten accident. I would think that if you continue to have these noises in your intestines (or stomach) that you may want to consult your doctor about it. You may be getting into a regular source of gluten contamination and not realise it. But I don't think it is supposted to be normal...

My intestines ALWAYS make that noise at any time during the day but I notice more at night when I am laying in bed. I am pretty sure I am 100% gluten-free, if I wasn't I would feel it, with doubled over pain, diarrhea, etc....

I have talked to my GASTRO doc and he wants to see me on Feb 5th. The only thing is he is not accepting Dr. Fine's diagnosis. Which I really don't care I know his disgnosis is correct and I will stick to my gluten-free diet.

I don't know if any of you use www.webmd.com but I have in the past especially when checking Celiac Disease. In the search engine I typed Audible Bowel Sounds and it pulled up over 100 links regarding LUPUS! Talk about freaking me out, honestly it made me a little nervous.

This is why I want your opinions, to see if it is normal or worth checking out. Thanks for each reply, I really appreciate it (more than you know) :)

My intestines rumble often also - my naturopath thinks I have a candida problem. Has anyone else had this suggestion made to them?

If you think the celiac disease diet can be rough you should try the B.E.Diet(Body Ecology Diet) This is a very strict diet designed to rid the body of harmful yeast. Most traditional doctors will find this idea laughable but ALL of my symptoms disappear when I am on the B.E.D. However, my will power fails after a few months and the rumbling returns when I add my dark chocolate and Apricot Biscuits back into my diet.

Feel Well and God Bless :D . Su

I have the rumbeling no matter what I eat. . .I don't get sick or anything. If I eat a bigger meal it is louder. .. .I dunno. . .I think it is just the way I am.

-edit-Tonight, I had the rumbeling real bad and got so sick. Maybe I just never thought of being sick and the noise as coinsiding. . .hmmm. . .though, it does happen when I don't get sick, too. I think gf4life is on to something with the dairy. The cold medicene I am on has lactose in it and I took lactaid. . .I usually eat dairy in the day. . .this is all so interesting. . .hahahahaha-edit-

Just curious, but how many of you with the rumbling, noisy tummies are still eating dairy products??

I was thinking about it, and I am casein sensitive as well as gluten intolerant, and I get the rumbling, gassy, bloating and noise when I eat dairy, even while 100% gluten-free.

Any of you still on dairy may want to just do a trial couple of days dairy free.

Mariann, excellent point! I am casein-free, but I forget to mention it anymore (can you believe that?!). That may very well be why tummy rumbling is so reliable a predictor of a gluten accident for me!

My celiac husband always had intestinal sounds before going gluten-free; and still has them. My theory is that since he's been undiagnosed for 28 years, he probably has a good amount of villi damage and until that's cleared up he's going to get those rumbles. The rumbles do not result in loose bowel, just noise and some intestinal gas. As the "healthy" mate, I have to admit I get the "gubba-gubba's" as I calll them, every now and then and I am not celiac (as far as I know).

I was my own walking slap stick comedy for five year olds--really lound, very gasey (but not gas) sounds. Very embarrassing. I"m just now getting diagnosed with Celiac, but in 2007 I cut out dairy and those sounds that plagued me since I was a kid, have almost disappeared. I only get them when I let myself have ice cream.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
