WOW! You know ..: BORBORYGMI! You must be looking up abdominal signs and symptoms. The rumbling noise made as your digestive system makes waves of contractions to move things along is usually normal, but all of your symptoms require evaluation. Intermittent bowel obstruction, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome could all be the diagnosis. Review the entire situation with your doctor. Good luck!
