My stomach keeps growling as if im hungry but I just ate, its been like this since yesterday the whole day. What could I do?
Why does my stomach make so much noise, it growls as if I was hungry but I am really not? Sometimes it even hurts when it does that!
"Grumbling" is the sound of AIR/LIQUID "mixing" and can be diminished by NOT EATING FOOD ALONG WITH LIQUIDS plus AVOIDING Carbonated Beverages!
Sometimes it's accentuated by intestinal contractions which are normal when you are hungry!!!! (Its like your intestines are "getting ready" to digest your food!
Hope this helps!

All night my lower abdomen was growling like crazy. I can feel it go up and down. I'm not even hungry. Making me feel very uncomfortable, why is that?
Why hold them?:
Passing the gas that accumulates in your intestines from swallowed air, bacteria etc is the normal way of removing it from your body. If you are holding it in you are causing gas and fluid to squirt back thru contracting intestines, causing your noises. Better to just excuse yourself and let it pass. See this website about reducing gas :
