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.

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
