What to do next??

What to do next??

I am at a bit of a loss here. I have been on this "investigation" of why my stomach sucks for the last 2 years but have suffered silently for the last 15 years.

I have had an endoscopy done a year and a half ago. This revealed a hernia in my stomach. There was not much mentioned to me about this, if it was of any cause for concern or how to manage any symptoms that I am having that could be related to it.

Three months ago, after bringing back to the table that I am still having stomach issues… read more

Can anybody suggest a treatment for occasional extreme bloating?

Can anybody suggest a treatment for occasional extreme bloating?

From time to time my IBS flares up and when it's at it's worst I suffer extreme bloating. Usually it occurs following eating food (even small snacks). Wind appears to get trapped, made worse by the other effects of suffering IBS ( esp constipation).
At its worst its so bad that if I were a woman I would swear I was pregnant!
I've tried using simethicone but it has little or no effect. I try to eat slowly so as not to take in too much air, but… read more

New to site--not sure I have IBS. Here are my symptoms:

My symptoms:

Rarely have diarrhea.
Rarely have constipation.
With certain foods I have either (or both) stomach/intestinal rumbling and "bubbling" as if there is fermentation.
The rumbling sounds occur usually after eating and at night--kinda sounds like I am hungry, but have already eaten so I am full.
The rumbling sometimes leads to passing wind and then it stops temporarily.
These sounds even occur after drinking water!
Trigger foods: Sodas, sugars, flour… read more

Does anyone experience little "bursts" in their stomach?

Does anyone experience little "bursts" in their stomach?

It's kind of hard to explain, but throughout the day I'll get these little "bursts" on the right side of my abdomen that sound like little farts, for lack of better words, coming from inside my abdomen. It's not like a regular rumbly tummy, but like little gurgly pop sounds and feels like shifting going on. My GI is kind of tired of me and says I'm just stressed from all my jobs. My PCD thinks it's trapped gas, but I'm not sure. She doesn't want to do any… read more

Stomach noises how loud are yours

Stomach noises how loud are yours

Just wondering about people's loud girgling noises your guts make. Once I was outside with my friend and she jumped up as she thought the drive gate was opening.... I laughed and said what's up, she said she thought her mother had arrived. I said no it's my guts just moving lol
