Hello all!
Now I'm sure this has nothing to do with Fibro. I just didn't know if anyone knew what it is or what's causing it. It's very annoying and sometimes painful.
My stomach growls! lol I know what you're thinking. Everyone's stomach growls! But mine growls WHILE I'm eating. I'll have eaten three bites of dinner and my stomach growls so profusely, you'd think I hadn't eaten in days. Or it'll start after I've eaten, like I never ate.
I read somewhere that your stomach can growl while digesting food, and that makes sense.. But I don't feel like I have enough food in my stomach for it to be so loud and uncomfortable. Like right now. I ate an hour ago and I feel like I haven't eaten all day. My stomach is growling, it hurts, it makes me nauseous. But I don't FEEL hungry.
I hope this makes sense.. lol This just started in the last month or so. I just don't know who else to ask, as I can't find any information about it online. Any ideas or advice on who to ask would be appreciated. Thank you! =)

Beth, I'd ask your PC or a gastroenterologist.  I've never heard of that before and, since it just started happening, something might be going on.

I agree with Sherrine.
Mine was doing that and making weird noises and I was also experiencing other stomache issues. I had an endoscopy and there were a few things wrong, nothing major, but this could of contributed to it I guess. Ever since I started taking prilosec it's stopped.

I wonder... if this could be a dairy intolerance.

See, I'm sick. I have a very bad sore throat and a mild fever. So when I'm sick, I make ramen noodles. With cheese. And my stomach has been doing this every time I eat for three or four days now. I just ate a handful of Doritoes (cheese) and my stomach hasn't stopped growling for 20 minutes. Very interesting indeed...

Take dairy products away & see if you feel better

I take vitamins, Tramadol for pain, Flexeril as needed.

If your stomach continues you should see if it lactose problems. i know a lot of us have lactose intolerence. Try to monitor your stomch when you eat or drink dairy products. I use to have a lot of bloating and gas problems. I now watch my dairy products or take lactaid tablets.

Hi everybody!
You know this stomach rumbling is not sth serious but it actually is sth worse than death in my opinion.
I tried many different things to control it to some extent because it was really nerve racking.It doesn't let us have a normal life.And it's all due to anxiety nothing else.
At last I tried below procedure to be able to attend my university classes:
In the morning,i take a pill called "colofac" 30mins before breakfast.
And just before,during and after each meal I eat a little mixture of fennel and Nigella Sativa.
And about 30mins after each meal I eat a spoon of honey with Nigella Sativa again.
All of them alongside eachother work for me.
Give it a try. scool

I have this sometimes, feeling hungry and then the nausea. For me, it is caused by my acid reflux/GERD and gastritis. I have to take Prilosec for it which does help. This may not be what is wrong with you, just an idea.

I have the same issue. My doctor said it was IBS associated with fibro. I've been experimenting - haven't come up with a definitive answer yet but am finding that eating foods like whole wheat breads, popcorn, is helping. Removing most dairy is helping as well. I can still eat small amounts of dairy, like a bit of sour cream, but lots of cheese, things with cream sauces, really get it going. I use almond mile with my cereal - a bowl of cereal seems to calm things down. I take omeprazole daily for stomach ulcers. The medicine helps with the pain but not with the noises.
