Nondiagnostic: These symptoms are nonspecific and they may be a variant of an irritable intestinal tract or a food intolerance such as lactose or gluten. Your stomach should be empty 2 hours after eating, so any sounds you hear are peristaltic waves moving through the intestinal tract. See if certain foods cause your symptoms. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you if needed.
