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.

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
