Why does my stomach keep making noises?

Asked by NostalgicChills (2759 points ) April 8th, 2011

Everyday around 12 pm, my stomach makes these weird growling noises similar to the ones it makes when you’re hungry. But I know it can’t be hungriness, because it happens even if I’ve just eaten. It’s embarrassing because its extremely loud and people can hear it.
Another thing, this started at the beginning of March.
Any ideas on what it is?

Your food is digesting?

@Jude
If thats the case, why now? And why only me?

It could be that you need probiotics. Sometimes, when peoples digestive systems have more “bad” bacteria than good, the digestion is slow and loud.

The rumbling is “normal” for me—I have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), and the noisy stomach is just one of many uncomfortable to painful consequences of the condition. You can look at some online sources for dietary changes to alleviate the symptoms.

Hmm, I can relate to you! My stomach does this in class sometimes, and I know that I’m not hungry too. It’s probably a diet issue. This only happens to me sometimes when my diet becomes worse than it was before, and when I eat less healthy, or not enough fibre… but I don’t know, those are just my self diagnoses to my strange and loud and embarrassing stomach growls that I get sometimes.. Perhaps you’ve changed your diet somehow?

I just read @Rarebear‘s link. Informative.

Too much gas, maybe? Take some gas pills.

Rarebear's avatar

You don’t need gas pills. You don’t need probiotcs. It’s normal.

@Rarebear It seems like it’s a recurring issue.

@weeveeship And normal things usually are.
