I have a Bubble gut

That is what I was told yesterday afternoon by a client. She wasn't being mean, just observant. Stated I have the noisiest gut she has ever heard. Said it's for sure bubble gut. Said she's gonna call her grandma to find out what I can do to make it settle down and she will let me know when we meet again in two weeks. I thought it was very caring. Of course she knows nothing about my health issues. I will listen to her grandma's advise via her and consider trying with in reason. After all, those old wives tales often work very well.

Just remember your GI doc thinks those sounds are a GOOD sign---when you stop having those noises with IBD-that is when you should worry-especially if you hurt.

Robin, My husband and I refer to my tummy noises as my "alien" .... and at times it more like the gremlins who have been fed after midnight. I have Crohns and I swear there are times when my belly swells and the gremlins and the alien fight it out in my tummy and it feels like I have a kindergarten class in my belly playing kick ball in my belly. Its crazy! And yes, my husband can hear it across the room. So, you are not alone in making noises. Cracks me up when my aliens starts up and people think I am hungry. Nope, just the alien waking up but make sure the path the bathroom is clear for the next hour or so. :coolfrown: Have a good night! Gin
