Why does my stomach make so much noise when I lay down [mainly when I'm on my back]?

Borborygmi

Noise
Borborygmi. (that term comes from the Greek, meaning rumbling around) It may sound like you have some type of disease, but is just the sounds your intestines make. From time to time the noised are louder and you can hear them from the outside. It is actually a normal part of digestion most of the time. Rarely, if accompanied by pain it may mean there is an obstruction in the bowel.

Fever and vomiting

Have him sit in a warm tub for half an hour at a time. Give him electrolyte replacement gluids and you van get Tylenol suppositories for fever control

Everyday I feel like I'm coming down with some cold or stomach bug. My mom says its depression. I dont think it is. Whats going on with me?

Please see doctor

Common_cold
It sounds like you disagree with your mother about the nature of your difficulties. Unfortunately without seeing and examining you (and running some diagnostic tests) anything we on HealthTap might say will be guesses also. I suggest you get a thorough evaluation with your physician so that you can provide your full history and get the kind of help you need. Best wishes.

What can I do to avoid coming down with a stomach bug after I've already been exposed?

You cannot

Stomach_flu
if your immune system is strong and have antibodies to the virus, you may not get it.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

I take Coumadin for an artificial valve. Should diarrhea from a stomach bug make my INR go up or down?

Either way

Dysentery
Depending on a number of factors, diarrhea can cause either increase or decrease in INR and the only way to find out is by having your blood tested. Given the importance of the issue, it would be prudent to contact your doctor.

Stomach bug/Vomiting/diarrhea in hypoglycemic (non-diabetic)Can't keep anything down, no signs of dehydration,sugar dropping to low 60s. How to treat?

ER

Increased_thirst
If you are truly that sick and not keeping anything down, then in fact you are headed towards dehydration and probably need an IV and examination of your electrolytes. Other tests will be done as appropriate as dictated by your condition. Sounds like you need to go in and be checked by your doctor or to an emergency room if necessary.

Possibly

Illness can cause some stress to your body, that may temporarily disrupt normal menstrual cycling. YOu should definitely be tested for pregnancy to be certain.

throwing up and can't keep anything down.very tired,running a fever,and just got over a cold..is a stomach bug?

Many possibilities

Stomach_flu
These symptoms may be secondary to a host of underlying illnesses. Treat yourself symptomatically with hydration, bedrest, stay away from alcohol and get better. If you continue to vomit and cannot keep anything down, go see a doctor ASAP.

"stomach bug"vomiting/diarrhea also very hypoglycemic (non-diabetic) cant keep (eat/drink) anything down all day.sugar dropping to 60's. how to treat?

You may need

Vomiting
an antiemetic suppository like Phenergan to reduce the vomiting enough to allow intake of some fluids. Gatorade-type drinks diluted by half would be recommended to begin with.

Dr. Holly Maes answered:

Someone held my 1 year old son yesterday for a few min and today they came down w the stomach bug. Where they contagious yesterday, will my son get it?

Virus contagiousness

Stomach
Yes, that person was likely contagious yesterday. Most people with viral illness begin to secrete the virus a day or two before they actually show symptoms. However, most stomach "flus" are transferred by what we call the "oral-fecal" route. Thus, just holding the child would be unlikely to expose, but if they touched the child's mouth, nose or made their food without good hand wash, could pass it
