does anyone get tinking noises from their gut? i have these quite often and have never heard anyone elses guts do this.(oh yea im still waiting on final diag. ibd,ibs, and was tested for whipples disease) ihad an ultra sound done and the tech that did it said she had crohns and her stomach made the same noises. it kind of sounds like water dripping in a room that has a echo. also i was wondering if you can give the name of drs on this site. i dont recall seeing any specific names. im from the pittsburgh area and have started going to upmc presby. it seems like it takes forever to get through all the tests. im going on 8 months now.(have had all the symptoms for years )  confused

Good Morning

High-pitched "tinkling" sounds may signal intestinal fluid and air under tension in a dilated bowel.

Your doc should listen to your abdomen with his stethoscope. Tinkling noises can indicate the start of a bowel obstruction. However, it could just be plain ol' borborygmi (normal bowel sounds) or simply hyperactive sounds...I'd check it out with your doc.
