My stomach is constantly making loud gurgling noises. No pain, but the noises are embarrassing. Is there anything I could do to help keep things quiet?

Not abnormal: Gurgling is simply due to gases and juices within the intestine and these occur after eating and even when the stomach is empty. If there are no other associated symptoms, there is nothing to worry about. Avoiding carbonated beverages and fast foods may decrease the gurgling. Avoid swallowing excess air and don't smoke. ...Read more

Loud gurgling noises that go constantly before and after eating. I also have constipation which im taking a laxative for. What could be the cause? Help

Loud gurgling noises that go constantly before and after eating. I also have constipation which im taking a laxative for. What could be the cause? Help

Before self-treating: Doctors define constipation as stools less frequently than once every 3-4 days. Patients feel they are "constipated" when passing hard or small volume stool, or they feel full ; bloated. Had an x-ray to show you're not blocked? We don't know if your gut is sluggish or your rectum works correctly--these can be tested for (sitz marker study ; anal manometry, respectively). See a GI specialist. ...Read more

My partner is 10 weeks pregnant and her stomach is making a lot of loud gurgling noises. Is this normal?

My partner is 10 weeks pregnant and her stomach is making a lot of loud gurgling noises. Is this normal?

Yes: The hormones of pregnancy cause a woman's digestive tract to move slower and this means more noise, more gas (yea!) and increased risk of constipation from the slower transit time. As long as she isn't having watery diarrhea or a fever, she should be fine. ...Read more

I have really loud gurgling noises coming from my stomach and anus. I also cannot seem to empty my bowels even though stool is soft. Please help?

I have really loud gurgling noises coming from my stomach and anus. I also cannot seem to empty my bowels even though stool is soft. Please help?

Not certain, But...: Based upon your description, I suspect that you are just extremely constipated. I would recommend trying milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) or a similar medication to try to "jump start" the system. See your primary doctor if it persists for more than a week or if you develop significant stomach pain. Take care, and I hope you feel better soon! ...Read more

Can IBS cause loud stomach noises/gurgling and rumbling? Had CDiff but been over a year since last had it. Haven't had recent abx or exposed to cdiff.

Can IBS cause loud stomach noises/gurgling and rumbling? Had CDiff but been over a year since last had it. Haven't had recent abx or exposed to cdiff.

It can.: IBS in and of itself can cause loud stomach noises, due to spasms of the intestines. It is possible to have recurrent C. diff, but unless you develop recurrent diarrhea, It is unlikely to be the cause of the sounds. I would not be concerned unless you develop other symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more

I have loud poping and gurgling noise in stomach and intestines was wondering if its gas was about to give gas x a try see if it will quiet down help?

I have loud poping and gurgling noise in stomach and intestines was wondering if its gas was about to give gas x a try see if it will quiet down help?

It may...: The sounds you are hearing are simply air moving through tubes (your guts). The air can be caused by eating fast causing you to swallow air, or by gases caused by the bacteria in your gut processing food. While Gas-X (simethicone) does not reduce the production of gas, it does break down gas bubbles, allowing it to pass with less discomfort. This can also help reduce the amount of sound in the gut. ...Read more

My stomach makes loud gurgling and popping noise feels like gas bursting. Is it the intestines or stomach was tested for h.polyri but came bak negativ?

My stomach makes loud gurgling and popping noise feels like gas bursting. Is it the intestines or stomach was tested for h.polyri but came bak negativ?

Feeling gassy & full: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut. ...Read more

Can you tell me, are there any foods that cause loud gurgling tummy aches?

Can you tell me, are there any foods that cause loud gurgling tummy aches?

FYI: Chocolate hurts: Chocolate contributes to stomach aches because: 1) theobromine in chocolate is a caffeine-derivative; 2) the calcium in the milk of mik chocolate stimulates gastrin to turn up acid production; & 3) the fat in chocolate delays stomach emptying. Moderation however is key here with chocolate or in any food consumed. ...Read more

Persistent loud gurgling, hissing sounds from abd daily. After eating, waking up, pm. Started couple mos ago. Hard to ignore. See Dr? Diet/med ideas?

Don't ignore: This may be something that is just diet related (eating more fiber? caffeinated beverages?). But the more worrisome explanation is obstruction to the GI tract from a growing tumor or enlarging organ (spleen), etc. After two months, I definitely recommend you see you Doctor ASAP for an evaluation. Make an appointment today. Good wishes:) ...Read more

I've been woken up (1am) with pain spread through my lower chest/upper abdomen And severe nausea. There is loud growling/gurgling and "hunger pains"?

Acute dyspepsia.: This acute finding could be one of a few things, and management will really depend on how today goes. This could simply be heartburn from something you ate last night - perhaps too large a meal or too late eating. Could be a gastroenteritis beginning, and if so vomiting and diarrhea may follow. If you start vomiting a lot or have bad diarrhea, see a local doctor right away. ...Read more

Loud gurgling sounds in abdomen, had a small bowel movement and felt incomplete and still loud gurgling and now I'm panicking that something serious!

Not likely. Constant: Intestinal muscle waves of contraction, back & forth, called peristalsis, under both brain & local control, is what mixes the ~7 liters/day of water excreted from blood stream into intestines to mix with food into a thin watery soup; the motion both mixing digestive enzymes with/break-down food molecules & constantly changing intestinal wall exposure for selective absorption. Air in water gurgles. ...Read more
