I'm Mahsa.An Iranian girl.I'm 18 years old.It's been 2 years that I have the same problem.
You mentioned any problem that i have.
You can't imagine how happy i am just because there are some people in the same boat as me.I had my most embarrassing time in the chemistry class.I learned almost nothing in that class.I sometimes wish to die just because of this darn disease.
unfortunately in iran we don't have good English classes so please don't laugh at me if you see any misspelling or irrelevant words
Anyway i was talking about my problem.I have to study for my university enterance exam and i realy like to become a doctor.
In our country it is so difficult to reach that goal.imagine 500000 people take this exam and only 1000 are allowed to study in this field
the problem is that this exam takes place only once in a year and i couldn't do my best in that exam mostly because of my rumbling stomach.
I want to take that exam one more time and i'm worried to death that the same thing happens again and worse than that if i become successful in the exam i have to live in the dormitory with srangers that don't realy understand what my problem is. It is my worst nightmare in life.
By the way,Water as you seggested may work but the problem is we have to go to bathroom several times to get it out
I've heared it over a grapewine that starchy food such as potatoes and bread is our pain in the neck.
I want to see a specialist soon i will inform you about his recommendations ASAP.
Wish you a great deal of time without stomach rumbling.

SuperThanks. you are very kind and helpful.I will try whatever you've mentioned.I hope i can find the same tablets in my country.
You are right,my stomach rumbling gets worse when i think about it.
I also found that "cardamom" , "cummin" and "fennel" ,which are some kind of plants, are realy effective.I myself will try these things from tommorrow.they told me i would see the effect after some time.
Here's the instruction of using them:
Use the poweder of the cardamom in your tea.(which is thought to be the most effective one)
Use cumin in rice(actually you can use cumin as a kind of spice with any kind of dish)
And about the fennel which is so disgusting,you should take one teaspoon of it everyday.
These have worked for some people in about 2 weeks.
I'm sure i have a kind of illness.So it's better to meet a doctor.I think i will see him in about 5days.It is very difficult to meet the best doctor in this field, It takes a very long time.
This problem is realy nerve-racking.I have almost no concentration while i'm studing.And i have always this fear that in the university among at least 40 people in the class which is complete silence, when the professor is teaching ,i will be humiliated in front of everybody by a loud rumble.
People say it is not a very bad disease but i think nothing can be more nerve-racking than this problem even the cancer.
Anyway,I'm realy sorry because i'm so talkative.
By the way, what is St Johns Wort?I couldn't understand it.
Thank you for giving me your golden time.

I have this too. It is caused by a bacteria that is passed through saliva. Did you kiss someone that has this, share drinks, or share utensils? I got it from a kiss. The guy didn't even use his tongue, but there was definite saliva swappage. Now my stomach growls like his.
You can go to a dentist that does "oral dna" testing. There are 3 oral dna tests. One for genetic predisposition for periodontal disease, one for oral hpv testing, and one for bacterial analysis. Get the one for bacterial analysis. Unfortunately the test is so new that insurance will not cover it. It will cost around $175. For best results, don't gargle any mouthwash before going, as this could momentarily reduce the bacteria in your mouth.
The bacteria on my chart says it's "refractive" as in, resists treatment. But there were other bacteria on my chart as well, so you may not have the same ones I have. The guy that gave this to me has had it for about 15 years. He knew he was giving it to me but went ahead anyway. He did not warn me.
I just want to add, I know with 100% certainty that this is passed through saliva. Saliva is the only thing me and this guy swapped. There was no down and dirty or even "feely uppy." All of my symptoms mirror his.
What's more, when I first told him about my stomach problems, he asked if I had a white tongue. I said no, but then 3 months after the kiss I got the first white tongue of my life. The reason people are not connecting this with saliva is because it takes time for the symptoms to show. It was about a month after the kiss when the borborygmi started for me.
Everyone has been taught to believe saliva is safe. Sharing drinks and kissing are so common. Stomach problems are also so common. Not all stomach problems are contagious, but this one is!
Thanks for your answer.
Kissing?! NO definitely.
I haven't kissed anyone in the way you mentioned in all my life.In our country we kiss people on the cheek.
And about utensils,I'm not sure.I usually use my private ones.And i'm sure the same test is not available in my country.
Unfortunately I couldn't meet the doctor today.It's supposed to be on Saturday.
The good news is that i found a guy with same problem.She told me a doctor had given her a kind of medicine called "Gastrolit" and after using it for a week all of the symptoms had gone away.
I have bought it too and i want to give it a try.
this medicine includes mint and thyme.It is used to cure IBS(the irritabe bowel syndrome).She was so happy that she could be cured after 3 consecutive years.
I hope it can work for me too.
Before i talk to people about my problem i thought i was the only one with this problem but now that i talk to different people about that,I have found out that many people have this problem.
Thanks God I'm not the odd one out.
I could meet the doctor at last.I want to cry out.
when i told him the symptoms i had,he laughed at me saying "it is most probably IBS.and it is mainely caused by your stres.Just be carefree and don't be afraid of getting embarrassd in front of people,this is caused by yor fears.up until the time u have stres,it is continued."
he also ased me to have blood test and excrement test so that he get sure I don't have any problem.And he said according to my tests he will give me the appropriate prescription.
He gave me some tranquilizing medicine insted.
Here are the names of the medicines:
3.Bi****h Subcitrate(this for i thing a kind of microbe in the stomach or sth i'm not sure)
And about Gastrolit that i ordered u in my previous post,I used it for some days it didn't help much.
To be honest,I know my problem is caused by stres because it got started as soon as i become involved in prepration for university entrance exam and rivalry...
Maybe we should be more carefree. I will inform u about the results of the tests and any further prescription.
Have nice time
