Why do our stomaches rumble/hurt if we haven't ate in a while?

Why do our stomaches rumble/hurt if we haven't ate in a while?

A Normal Process: Hunger causes stomach rumbling & mild cramping pain. Certain hormones notify our brain when food intake is needed. More hormones signal the release of stomach digestive juices & movement of muscles in the stomach wall. This movement mixes & pushes stomach contents into the duodenum which can cause cramps. The rumbling noises can sound louder when your stomach is empty. Eating regular meals helps. ...Read more
