I've been having intestinal gurgling on and off for a week. Occasional mild nausea, no vomiting. Loose stools and gas pain too. Any ideas?

In brief: Sounds like you

probably have a stomach virus.
Try some pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) for relief-it will turn your stools black in color. You can take pepto as long as you're not pregnant. Eat a bland diet next few days,or even clear liquids(like gatorade) and see if this helps. If symptoms persist,see your Dr.
