My Stomach Is Making The Worst Noises!
0

14 posts in this topic

This has been going on now for several months and I know I need to get it checked out but it doesnt hurt too bad and I dont trust doctors still since 5 years ago I had a horrible experience trying to get diagnosed... my doctor refused to test me for the condition and told me I could not live the rest of my life on a diet free og gluten..

Anyways my stomach is making horrible noises and its everyday.. its not a growl but it occurs about 2-3 hours after I have eaten its like if I breath out hard or suck in alittle it makes this noises like its about to eat me! It just happened this morning when I had eaten a good breakfast of scrambled eggs, with lactose free cheese, grits and a tangerine.. which is a hearty breakfast but just 2 hours later my tummy is rolling and its high on the left side right under my ribs.. It tends to happen more closer to my period but the location of it makes no sense in relation to my menstration. If someone has an idea of what this could be let me know.. my mom always encourages me to eat something when it does it and when I does it quiets it almost as imediate as the first bite.. this is so strange please help!

More than likely it's just your food working it's less than smooth way through the digestive track. I go through phases where this happens, and my period definitely affects my GI system. You might want to try some digestive enzymes when you eat and eat smaller meals more frequently.

This is what I did when I first started having trouble with eggs. I could eat eggs every 3 days and be fine, but I was miserable if I tried to eat them every day.

But, it could also be any of the foods you are eating. We are all different.

Before I when I was eating gluten, my stomach (or gi tract) made noises like that constantly. But, since being gluten-free my system is silent.

maybe you are casein intolerant instead of lactose intolerant (assuming from the lactose-free cheese).

I agree, that was my first thought when reading your post, that it might be the cheese. Or the eggs. Meaning, you really need to try an elimination diet to figure this out.

I suggest that for the next two weeks to a month you try going completely dairy free (maybe even egg free as well). If the issue resolves, you have your answer. If you want to be sure, eat the offending food for a day to see if the symptoms return.

I know it's a bummer when you discover other intolerances that make your diet even more restricted, but there isn't much you can do about it.

I always described my stomach noises (pre-gluten-free) as wolverines trying to make thier way out of my intestines!! It didn't HURT... but it sure was noisy!!

It'd be hard to try casien free since its around christmas and I already find it hard to find things to eat but I guess its worth a try, my stomach doesnt hurt either its just a terrible noise, I was thinking it could have nothing to do with food Iv read somethin on here and other resources about colon spasms and it sorta sounds releated but I might try to eliminate the foods anyway and see if I have relief.

Whenever I eat something I'm intolerant to, my system makes these noises. It's like I can hear the food making it's way through my digestive system!

I have the same problem. Usually in the morning but sometimes in the afternoon, my stomach can make very loud noises. It is a real problem if I am in a meeting at work. I've tracked it down to the combination of two things. First, it happens when there is nothing in my stomach. Second, it tends to be associated with stress. For instance, It happens mostly at work and rarely at home.

I can solve the problem by regular snacking. If I have a meeting, I simply eat a banana or some other piece of fruit and the problem is solved.

I used to have this. Then I found out I was allergic to eggs (severe), dairy and almonds. Gave those up and I rarely ever have a problem now. And when I do it is much less than it used to be. I was also diagnosed with GERD and possibly delayed stomach emptying due to diabetes. Guess I'll never know for sure since the test requires eating eggs.

I used to have it too. since going gluten-free, its better. I read that intolerances/sensitivities come along with water retention in the intestines and the movement of the water inside is making these noises.

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
