Re: Stomach Noises
Hello everyone,

Sorry that I have not been on here for a while, but it's just that my account was suspended for posting links on here. It took a while for it to get reactivated and then it didn't let me log in for a while.


Well I can see that we are all doing lots of research and I hope that we can each find a solution to our problems. I went to the Vitamin Shoppe and I bought so much stuff, since I got a 20% coupon. I also went to another place and bought OxyPowder. I have been on the Oxypowder for 3 days, going on 4. I have to work tomorrow, so I'm going to stop and start again over the weekend. I hope this stuff helps me, my stomach has been making horrible sounds lately, but I know it's because of the OxyPowder. I started out at 4 pills then went to 6 and now I'm at 8. I have had 4 bowl movements this morning, haha, it's insane. I mean it's mainly all fluid, but I see some weird things in their and I hope it's the Candida, being flushed out.

I have been taking all the things I was before, Caprylic Acid, Zinc, Pau D' Arco, Flax seed oil, Metamucil, garlic pills, grapefruit seed extract, l-glutamine and probiotics.

I bought Oregano oil, Candidagone, Super Digestaway, but have not taken them yet.

I'm hoping to take all these Candida killer things and then flush everything out of my colon with OxyPowder. I hope I know what I'm doing, but it makes sense. After I flush most things out, then I'll Bombard my colon with Oregano Oil, Candidagone, Super Digestaway and all the other things.


My stomach feels soo much better and I have been taking Activa yogurts and my stomach does not make any noises after I take them. My stomach has made noises in the last two days and it's bowel movements. I hope this OxyPowder is as good as people say it is. So far I have felt better, but watch out if you take OxyPowder, since you never really know when you need to use the restroom. The guy who sold me the pills, told me that becareful, because sometimes you may want to let gas out, but instead stool may come out, so becareful if you take the pills.

I'm more than sure I have candida and I'm more than sure that is my problem and the problem of some of you. I think that our problems are closely related and that we need to clean out our colons and replenish them with good bacteria and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

I will keep you guys posted on how everything goes. Best of luck to everyone.

Re: Stomach noises - possible solution
Hi, I do get stomach noises as well, continuosly and always at the wrong time. Have you ever noticed why that always happens? I might be sitting in French and all of a sudden GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! 1 second pause BBBBBRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! Embarrassing! Yes I know! And always whilst the class is totally silent! Why beacause I am so concious of my stomach making noises that I either will it to make that horrid noise, or the anxiety causes my blood to pump faster then disrupts my digestive system and causes the loudest possible growl ever. But since then, I decided that I would forget about the noises, eat wet foods -- fruits in the morning (it helps for me) and move on with my life. There are people dying of cancer out in the world and here I was worrying about my social status and a few ( or alot) of noises that are so called "aliens in my stomach". Believe me - it helps. The best cure to this ailment or whatever it is, is to stop thinking about it and move on with your life. That is of course if you don't have an actual condition, which I doubt that everyone has. Even so - We make it out to be worse than it is.

Thanks,
Hope it works for you.

Stomach noises
Finding this forum and thread has made me feel a little bit better now that I know there are other people out there having the same problem. I first started having problems in my senior year of high school. In the morning classes I would get discomfort and would be moving around in my seat. I think in that case it was gas. There was one time in class we were all reading and I was moving around like a nutter and then my body made a loud noise and I'm sure everyone in the whole class heard but no one said anything. Now that I've started college it's happened again. I'd be tossing and turning in my chair, uncomfortable and trying to hide the noises from my stomach by turning pages or moving around in my seat. I've been trying to train my body to have a BM in the morning before I go to school, since having to poop also gives me discomfort and gas. I wake up at 6 in the morning, 3 hours before school, just so that I can have a lot of time to go. I also have a strong dislike of using public bathrooms which makes it worse. There is no privacy. Every day I take psillium husk fiber and drink a lot of water. I think I eat healthy. I'm also a vegetarian. But I had the problem even before I was a vegetarian so I don't think that has anything to do with it. I thought I would have an advantage in bowel health from not eating meat but that doesn't seem to be the case. Sad Even with me taking fiber and going to the bathroom in the morning I'm still getting the horrible discomfort and noises in class. It's like I can feel the gas and mush moving through my intestine and making noises. I can't concentrate and I don't think I will be able to stay in school. I can't concentrate in class. All I'm thinking about is my stomach discomfort and concentrating on how I'm going to hide the noises. Last semester I rushed through my finals but luckily I still passed. I don't know if I'll be as lucky this semester.

Hey I just wanted to let you guys know that there is another forum with lots of other information "noisey abdomen". There is a lot of information on there and there are also a lot of other users. I just thought I would pass that info around, so that way we can all share info on the same forum.

What helps me
I have also had this problem since my freshman year in high-school. I found it quite embarrassing and hated to be in class, it was the worst. Somethings that I found to help me a lot.

1. Burp a lot. (it might sound gross but it gets the gas out of your stomach)

2. Also try not to drink soda because of all the carbonation. (I pour in in a cup with ice and this usually gets rid of the bubbles)

3. I also do exercises, like crunches and exercise like them. This works my abdominal muscles, which seems to help a lot I also started walking. (I don't think that has anything to do with it but I'm doing it to be healthy)

4. I can also tell when my stomach is about to start making noises. So I keep a bottle of water with me to take a drink. When I do this my stomach stays quite. (this also helps hydrate you and keep your digestive track healthy)

When I do all this I can go all day with out any noises at all. I used to find this a hard problem to deal with but know its not. I hope that my information has been helpful to everyone. :]

read about H pylori and get a blood test to see if you have it. one of the symptoms is loud stomach gurgling. i just got tested and it was positive ( it's a parasite) . i just got off 1 week of very strong antibiotcs that eradicate it. no more gurgling so far!! go get tested... it is a common parasite and believe it or not i went to 4 docs this year and none of them figured it out...i figured it out on my own.

I just had a milo and my stomach is going crazy. I dont get pains like some people have reported, but its very noisy. Sometimes my bf puts his ear to my stomach and keeps jumping up as a big sound comes, haha. Anyway i find probiotics help. You can take the capsule form or liquid form like Yalkult.. which is near the yoghurt section in supermarkets. The capsule form you can get from a chemist and you will have to ask for it as they keep it in a fridge somewhere. It has to be refrigerated otherwise the good bacteria dies. Your only supposed to take one capsule a day, but if its late in the day and its going crazy i just pop another one and it clears it up.

Update on my previous post. I have been eating Activia yoghurt and I have noticed it has really helped. The only problem is now I have to be eating them every day and the problem still isn't gone completely. Sad

re: stomach noises
This is a problem that I had suffered for two years, since Year 7. After that I told my mum that my noises were out of control and that I wanted to go to the doctors. My GP sent me to numerous specialists and I had basically every test in the book. I had everything from X-Rays to Ultrasounds to blood tests to gastroscapies where they stick a camera in your stomach. My parents wound up spending thousands of dollars on medical tests to get to the bottom of the noises. You know what the doctors found?......... NOTHING...... So therefore the problem had to be psycalogical. So I was told that the only cure was to get over it.

It was hard at first as I was in denial as to nothing being wrong with me. I thought that there must have been something causing the noises. Then months later, I came to terms with my self enduced stomach noises and grew out of them. Since then I have had no noises. Only the EXTREMELY occasional one every few months when I am alone.

So there. I no longer have the noises. It was all in my mind. And THERE IS NO MEDICAL PRODUCT THAT CAN CURE THESE NOISES REALLY. It is up to you. It worked for me.

Good luck.

stomach noises
wow. i guess iam not the only one. i am the only one, however to find something to help really well. i am 17 and have had this problem for about mmm 5 months now. the doctors first told me it was ibs, then was something wrong with my intestines, etc... my noises get worse right after i eat and when i am hungry. i get noises like gurgling in my lower left side and sometimes its painful. also when i work out and stress my lower abbs i notice the next day my problem increases like 10 fold. also quiet places are my enemy as well. but i have noticed, and its hard to do, but if you do something thats fun, u completly forget about the noises even if u play cards where its quiet. alot of things say its in your head and i always said i have a problem with my stomach not my head. it works great though. honestly try not to think about it. another thing i have done is tried drinking pop, but only like 2 cans a day. it helps release alot of gas, which i truly believe is what is wrong with all of us. a doctor actually heard the noises during one of my attacks and said it was gas. i am currently noticing a huge improvment in the nosies. omperzole, helped me alot which is an over the counter drug. i am currently trying new gas medicine and i will post my results. not trying to be gross but try for one day drinking alot of pop and eating the foods u like, and try (gross part) relieveing gas any way u can by belching or other end and see if the noises get better when u do. the noise will increase when u eat foods u like(for me mexican) but when u relief theh gas the noise goes away and for the first time in five months my stomach made no noise for a whole day, which was yesterday. i may be on the verge of figuring out what is wrong. give it a try and let me know how it works and if u agree with me thats its just gas. dont let it ruin ur life. i told all my friends i have a problem and they have heard the noises. everyone has a problem u will soon find out ( iam only 17 and i found that out). friends will be there with u and they dont care if u have noises as long as ur with them and fine they will always be there. one last thing. it wont ruin a relationship. i have a few girls who like me alot and dont care that i have a second language coming from my body. i notice when people know i ahae and are cool with it my problem seems to disappear. so its either all in our heads or its gas. hopefully this helps and i will post my results like i said in about a week or two.

try eliminating fruit
I have very loud stmach noises too. At the beginning I thought it was the Celias disease (intolerance to gluten) but I was tested and it was negative. Then I tried to eliminate fruits completely and it does make a huge difference, no more noise. I eat fruit but only at home.

ditto
I have the same problem!

I can tell you this, it happens in situations where you are stressed out.
This is because when you are stressed, especially nervous, your whole body tightens, including your stomache so any gases you have will be squeezed to death. I take around 4-5 tums everymorning and eat a banana and I no longer have ANY sounds, this works great so i hope you all give it an honest try.

It's not stress or anxiety. It's a slow moving bowel. The gas builds up in your stomach because the contents of your bowel are not being moved through at an appropriate rate. Some people can fix this with fiber, some people have a partial paralysis, mechanical problem (polyp etc), or a slow moving bowel that can only be fixed with a good doctor and the right medicine. Most doctors are morons these days.

RELIEF - the 1st post got messed up
I've developed a very noisy tummy as well. I'm in college and I too have wanted to avoid going to class because of the embarrassment. I've been doing a lot of research and have found some RELIEF! The trick is to pack your belly with PROBIOTICS! What seems to happening is that some how my levels of "bad" bacterial flora have taken control of my stomach attaching any good bacteria trying to cultivate. It is this "good" bacteria found in probiotics that help quiet my stomach, allow the good flora to reach your intestines where they can colonize restoring digestive health and functioning. Probiotics have many many other beneficial qualities: stabilize cholesterol and can even inhibit cancer. The best probiotics to calm and quiet the stomach are of the Lactobacillus family often found in many Acidophilus supplements. The best way to consume these is chilled because the good bacteria are still found to have high counts (in the billions). Regular supplements found on Wal-Mart's shelf are fine too, but the beneficial bacteria is not as potent (since bacteria has to stay alive too). I've found relief using: refrigerated liquid "Good Belly" drinks. They contain Lactobacillus Plantarum and many other vitamins. Drinking one right before I have to be in a quick situation is great. You can find them at Publix or any nicer grocery store. I also like to drink "Kefir" milk. It's thick like drinking yogurt, but does the calming trick after a meal (lunch when my stomach is its loudest). It has 10 probiotics and a good many from the LB family. Another good capsule supplement is Acidophilus, but make sure to buy it already refrigerated and keep cold at home. You can find this at any health food store. The better forms are chilled but only a little more pricey. And a good stand-by is GREEK YOGURT (much better than regular for the tummy).

I've also tried cutting out peanut butter and peanuts because once in the stomach they grow large amounts of yeast and mold. That may irritate the stomach. So far, looks to be working. I've also recently stopped taking prescription acne facial cream who's job was to essentially "kill" bacteria in my pores by way of absorption. By not discriminating it was probably killing off any good bacteria my stomach was trying to keep around. Prescription acne medicines all seem to be really hard on the stomach.

You may also want to check into acidity levels of the stomach. Something like 95% of people believe they're producing too much stomach acid, but are actually not producing enough. By taking antacids they irritation is worsening.


HOPE THIS HELPS. GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!

i have had this problem for about 2 years now. last year, i had this really important exam. and since then, i've never felt comfortable ever again.
though reading all of your comments made me feel much better, because i now know i'm not the only one that's suffering from such a silly yet extremely embarassing problem. the thing is, my friends have never really heard the noise. but, when i'm in a test, i just lose it. i can't breathe anymore. i start sweating. it's horrible. i always sit in the back and ask the teacher to open the door or the windows. to me, it helps. but during tests, we're not always aloud to sit wherever we want and so i stress, not because of the test, but because of what may happen during the test. it completely sucks because i want to concentrate and i can't. i want to sit in front and participate. i want to do so many things. and it just prevents me from doing them. now what's good is that, no one can really hear the noises but it's still there and .. i just want it to go!
i've tried eating more properly. i always eat the same things. i went to the doctor last year but i don't think he understood me very clearly. he took a blood test and told me i had nothing wrong. this year, we have many tests. i haven't had the noises for a while but i stress during the test. i'm never relaxed. the noise comes from my lower stomach. really on my but area. so it sounds like some fart you're trying to hold in. but it's not. the first year i got it, i kept getting out of class to go to the bathroom but it never helped. it just helped me get out of this uncomfortable situation for a few minutes.
what can i do?
