Oh Please tell me, have you been to the Doctor for this..? I had a similar problem years ago but I had a severe case of Gastrointestinitis It caused really bad gas and belching with horrible tasting eggy burps etc.. I am not a Doctor but I think you should see one. Alot of foods can cause trouble like that.. I have a friend who has dairy problems.. ingesting dairy products does that to him.. It could be something you are eating.. or any number of things. You should see your doctoer and seriously get someone to talk about your depression.. feeling like that is no good and there are lots of councilors out there to help. I am seeing a councelor for my depression and it does help and between that and maybe seeing a physician about the other you might get to feeling better.

Being sick can really make you depressed! Seek help..What do your parents say?

So your stomach growls after eating and before.. you may be mistaking growling for digestion noises  sometimes my stomach growls and feels bad when I am hungry also.. are you eating a healthy well balanced diet?

So when you say dying do you mean you are terminally ill or that this flatulence and stomach growling is really becoming a problem for you emotionally and physically?

Do you mind if I ask you how old you are?

My stomach made a ton of digesting noises very loud sometimes obnoxious.. it was awful, but I would say that at that time those noises that were coming from my stomach were not growls but digestion noises and gas bubbles moving around in my intestines...
I would say The doctor will know best and make sure you follow his advice well sometimes these things take a long time to get straightened out so perhaps you just need more time and medication.. did you take all the medications as directed.. as it can't help unless you finish your meds as directed over the period of time they were intended to be taken...

Some one should come along that will be a lot more help then I as I like I said am not a Doctor.. Be patient and someone will come along with maybe some sound good information about these kind of things! Hope everything works out well for you!

This might sound a bit bloody obvious, but here goes anyway, I find natural live yogurt is a good cure for most upsets in the belly region, not one of these expensive drinking yogurt's, just plain simple live yogurt. Or have you tried 'Milk of Magnesia'™ (not sure about the spelling of that) taken with a little milk. Both are assuming you have no problems with dairy products, although 'Milk of Magnesia'™ can be taken neat.

Just to cheer you up a little (I hope), a woman with this problem went to see her doctor. He told her to strip from the waste down and bend over the back of the chair. As she was doing this, she suffered a prolonged attack of the wind. Looking behind her, she noticed the doctor had a long wooden pole with a large hook on the end in his hands.
"Oh my!!!" she gasped, "You're not going to put that up my bum are you?" and let rip another prize winner.
"No" said the doctor, waving his hand in front of his face and choking, "I'm going to open the bloody window".

Sorry, I shouldn't mock.

You may need to take probiotic capsules or sachet powders. This will balance your internal bacteria levels. Don't go for the yoghurt drink versions as they tend to contain too much sugar which can counteract the good work. Also as a starting tactic you can buy fibre gel over the counter in the chemist. Tell them you have had it before as sometimes they worry you may be using it as part of an eating disorder. Fibre gel will help you form healthy stools and stop the build up of gas.

Trust me I'm an IBS sufferer.

Your welcome young man...Please let me know how things are progressing... and please don,t give up...There is no need to be embarrassed it is a medical issue....that you need to seek specific help for.....this..are you in UK or US or what... do they have a public heath system that can help out with costs etc. I know testing can be expensive and there are usually alternate programs usually in place to help in that way. take care  let me know...how you are ...ok?

Have you tried Dr J Collis-Brown's Compound™? I think it is still available over the counter at chemists although controlled because I think it contains morphine (albeit in a very small quantity).

We do, we are just not as triumphant asd men about it.
Unless of course it happens to be in bed when you can let a silent one out that your partner doesn't get a whiff of until he moves the duvet...  [:o)]
Or if you are really comfortable with him, you can always force his head under the duvet...

Well I just had a Pork Jalfrezi and 2/3 bottle of wine, so I guess I'm in for it. It's not the wind (by the way beer and curries are the worst for this) but the "ring of fire" the next day. I don't think it is what Johnny Cash sings about. Still, there is something slightly addictive about hot curries.

What's really a blast is to load up on pinto beans and  go to the mall. Find yourself a crowded corner and while standing really close to someone else, rip one of those real stinkers off. When they catch wind of your offering, back away and point an accusing finger at them.  [xx(] [xx(] [xx(] [xx(] [???]

I'll leave the rest to your imagination!lol [;D]

« Reply #32 on: 17/06/2011 12:42:47 »
Hi there, I've been suffering from the same symptoms in the past - flatulence, growling. A year or so later I have also developed constipation and abdominal pain after meal, put on weight. My GP wasn't taking my symptoms seriously taking my young age into consideration, he prescribed gaviscon, stool softeners, suggested stress, then IBS blah blah. So years later I couldn't take it anymore and I headed to a private hospital and had endoscopy done. That's when I discovered that I had h.pylori bacteria, theres plenty info on it on the internet. However growling and flatulence are not main symptoms and hence it's often misdiagnozed. It has also caused me some other serious problems as I left it untreated for so long - severe gastritis, anal fissure, acid reflux. Don't mean to scare you but just want you to understand importance of getting tested for it, certainly suggest it to your GP next time! I'm now finished with my antibiotics treatment and all my symptoms are gone! This is just one of the directions for you to look at and I trully hope it helps as I know how difficult it is
