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.

    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better. 
    • Ok guys!   The original post was 3 years ago!  Ingredients, manufacturing methods,  labeling, etc.  may have changed during that time.  A lot of companies have really come a long way on gluten-free in the last 3-4 years.
