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.

    • Hey Matt  thanks for your reply fellow Brit! I this is very interesting... I am very sensitive to cross contamination... e.g. A sieve wasn't washed properly when I lived at my mums so when I had drained my gluten-free pasta .. I hadn't even eaten the dish before I started to pass out and go dizzy and hot .. calling for my bf and mum ( they had a great team going when I would have an episode) it's horrendous!  The fatigue is something I imagine every coeliac suffers with! I have to nap a lot.  Ok so the booze I drink most of is -processo -amaretto -vodka, wine, cider (very rarely)  when I drink at home I'm fine!!!  I wonder if it's cross contamination from the bar or the level of alcohol?!  I also had a jäger bomb shot on Friday (looked it up and a lot of people say it's gluten-free)  it's a hard live but someone's got to do it!!  Thanks for the reply!  When you get poorly from gluten (and the other evil candidates) are you so bad you can't function and feel your body is about to snap?  Kind regards  steph 
    • Hi Steph and welcome I'm yet another Brit, funny how the alcohol threads flush us out I don't drink now but after a big night I used to get truly savage all day hangovers, much worse than those of my friends. They could include splitting headaches, vomiting, nausea, a 'fuzziness' in my head, sweats etc.  After I put the pieces together and went gluten free I had a 'big night' on cider only and the next day was a revelation. What I'd thought was a 'normal' hangover was, for me at least, anything but. With gluten out of the equation hangovers were a breeze! The difference was mind blowing and just one more example of how gluten had been messing with me over the years. So when I read your post my first thought was that there was some trace gluten contamination going on. However: Obviously you've been at the diet for some considerable time now and know the score. I know Coeliac UK are firmly of the opinion that all spirits are safe but some (note some this a contentious one :D) members here will tell you they react to gluten based grain spirits for instance which distillation should render safe.  Then there's the dangers of shared lines if you're drinking say Strongbow in a pub as alluded to above. Lastly it its wine, there's the often cited but maybe apocryphal these days 'flour to seal the casks' possibility. Finally there's bar snacks, maybe a brand of nuts etc that you snack on that may have changed their production process? I'm sure you've thought of these already, but it may be useful if you post your alcoholic drink choices / bar snack of choice up here maybe someone will have some input?.   The second thing which leapt out was: Would you class yourself as super sensitive to cross contamination etc? Firstly that would make the cross contamination theory more compelling. You could test that out by having a drink at home under controlled circumstances to see whether the same issue arises? That could also answer the quantity question. Does one safe drink trigger it, two, three etc? Finally, and this is one that I find difficult, knowing you have the gluten issue may lead you to assume it's that when it could be something else. I tend to attribute EVERYTHING in the world to gluten these days due to it being able to affect me in so many different ways. Crisis in Korea? Gluten. Russian tanks massing on the Ukrainian border? Check their wheat intake. Global warming? etc. So it may make sense to pursue some other ideas at the same time.

    • Similarly, I've been vegetarian for 25+ years.  A 2015 Nature study connecting emulsifiers with microbiome changes has me wondering about the processed foods that I ate in the past, and I wonder about the wisdom of eating as much seitan as I did.  I mostly prefer my post-diagnosis diet since it forces me to consider every ingredient and to cook from scratch more.
    • LOL, that might put it into perspective if I explain it that way. 
    • I am very interested in this too. My daughter tested negative for celiac, but has terrible primarily neurological symptoms. Because she tested positive for SIBO at the time and was having some GI symptoms, I was told it was just a Fodmap issue.  I knew better and we have been gluten free for 2 years.  Fast forward to this February. She had a SIBO recurrence that I treated at home with diet and herbal antibiotics because I couldn't get the insurance referral. She was doing great. Then stupid me brought in gluten containing chick feed for the new baby chicks we got.   Feed dust everywhere. Total mess.  Really, no GI symptoms (she was SIBO free by then)...but the neurological symptoms! my daughter couldn't walk for three days. Burning down one leg, nerve pain in the foot. Also heaviness of limbs, headache and fatigue. Better after three days. But unfortunately she had a TINY gluten exposure at that three day mark and had another severe reaction: loss of balance, loss of feeling in her back and arms, couldn't see for a few seconds, and three days of hand numbness, fatigue, concentration problems.  Well, I actually contacted Dr. Hadjivassilou by email and he confirmed that the symptoms are consistent with gluten ataxia but any testing would require a gluten challenge. Even with these exposures, antibodies would not be high enough.  His suggestion was maintain vigilance gluten free.  I just saw my daughter's GI at U of C and she really only recognizes celiac disease and neurological complications of that. But my impression is that gluten ataxia is another branch in the autoimmune side of things (with celiac and DH being the other two).   At this point, I know a diagnosis is important. But I don't know how to get there. We homeschool right now so I can give her time to heal when she is accidentally glutened, I can keep my home safe for her (ugh, that I didn't think of the chicken feed!)  But at some point, she is going to be in college, needing to take exams, and totally incapacitated because of an exposure.  And doctors state side that are worth seeing?  Who is looking at gluten ataxia in the US?
