So lately I have been having days where I wake up with this really loud, constant growling in my stomach. It lasts all day long and I usually dont have a bowl movement on these days. I have had UC for almost a year now (no remission yet) and this has just recently started. Any ideas on what this might be or what might be causing it? How can I get rid of it? I mean, its kind of embarrassing because it is SO loud and you can literally feel it in my stomach or even my back if you touch me! I thought it might be gas, but I am not really releasing any gas at all...
Thanks for any insight here! :)
