Hello, I’m new to the forum. I was diagnosed with small bowel Crohns about a year ago. Still trying to understand when to be concerned and what to do about certain symptoms. For example, my gut rumbles loudly sometimes. I mean across the room loud. When I’m in meetings at work, people ask me if I missed breakfast or lunch, but that’s not it at all. It normally rumbles more after a meal, but not necessarily. I’ve found it to be a precursor of a flare up.
When I told my gastro this, she seemed to think it was probably unrelated, but i really really dont think so. When I had my near full bowel obstruction earlier this year, my gut was going crazy then. It’s also often accompanied by very smelly gas :/
My questions are, does anyone else have these symptoms and find them to be associated with Crohns? If so, has any medication worked to reduce the symptoms? I’ve tried gas x and IB Gard and dont think they do anything. Anything else you have done with these symptoms? It’s very embarrassing, especially at work. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
