I Have Constant Gurgling And Bubbling Noises From My Intestinal Tract Or Stomach When I Eat Or Drink. I Just Had A Colonoscopy And They Said That I Have Hemorrhoids. What Could Be Causing The Noises?

A gurgling noise in the stomach can be an embarrassing problem. 0There are many causes of stomach gurgling. Read on to find out more. The gurgling noise in the stomach is produced when there is a sudden contraction of the muscles that are located in the intestine and the stomach. The various reasons as to why this rumbling or gurgling noise in the stomach occurs are as follows:-

The noise could be due to some of the foods that you are eating. Some foods do not break down until they get into the large intestine. These foods increase the amount of air they produce during the digestive process. Certain foods which cause stomach bloating are peas, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, beans and so on. Other foods that cause stomach bloating and the resulting gurgling noise in the stomach are carbonated beverages and high fiber foods.

Frequent bouts of stomach gurgling could also be due to the stomach being full. If severe stomach cramps, abdominal pain and diarrhea accompany the gurgling noise in the stomach, it could signal the onset of a gastrointestinal disorder such as irritable bowel syndrome.

Hunger is one of the main reasons behind a gurgling noise in the stomach. Skipping meals could also lead to this problem occurring.
