The gicare page no longer exists. They changed their site. I really liked that page. The diet was spot on. Oh, well.
Every human's colon makes noises.IBSers do seem to complain about their intestines being noisier than they used to be.Have you tried either probiotics (bacteria that don't produce gas when they digest carbs) or a flatus reduction diet (see http://www.gicare.co...ed/edtgs12.htm) to see if that reduces the problem?

A person needs to watch out for probiotics with FOS. The FOS can produce gas. The best probiotics I have found are at http://www.custompro...s.com/index.htm and http://www.kirkmanlabs.com/. Kirkman Labs also have enzymes. I take both enzymes and probiotics. This product works good for me: http://www.kirkmanla...Group_ID@1.aspx.
I am taking Multibionta for a couple of days now, but haven't noticed a positive effect yet. It's hard for me to follow a diet because I am college student living in dormitory, but I am planning to try a diet in semester break. Can you recommend a prebiotic for me to reduce the flatulence? And how long you should take the prebiotic to have a positive effect?

hi mate, ive been suffering with IBS that match your description perfectly for over 3 years now.. it started off with just the mucus and difficulty passing stool which then lead me to mucus and normal stool but came out fast.. and then to excess amounts of gas in my stomach that you can constantly hear even just by pressing your stomach...the only thing that has stayed throughout all of this is the amounts of mucus that lead you to going to the bathroom every half an hour due to the built up pressure from the gas.it got so bad i haveto force myself to throw up just to get rid of the trapped air, seen over 9 specialist doctors now all confirming servire ibs tried every drug tried every alternative theropy and nothing worked infact things like mebeverine and peppermint oil made it worse, expecially antaacids for my acid reflux.because of the ibs i was finding moer and moer food i couldnt eat anymore almost like a intolerance that wasnt there gluten nuts seeds fruits and especially dairy.finally my doctor precribes me amitriptyline at 100mg a night and it take it everynight for 3 months and im noticing a huge improvement i only feel that way once every two weeks and it has helped majorly, i found the fact i was feeling so sick for all that time the cause of me getting like that so hypnotheropy with the drugs helped alot aswell.obviously i am not a doctor im only 20 and im not as knowledgable as some on this site, but what your describing is exactly how i felt/feel and thought as i could never find an answer all this time online that helped i thought maybe i could help someone else...
Hello, I am new to this site. My complaints started 3 years ago, at the age of 19, with intestinal rumbling. I wasn't so gassy, but I could feel the gas and liquids moving around my intestines. Day by day my gas became worse, now I pass gas 50 times a day. Whatever I eat, my body produce so much gas and I need to pass the gas immediately. The rumbling is amazing, so noisy, and I can even sense the rumbling in my anus sometimes. Drinking coffee or coke makes me much more uncomfortable, I need to pass gas all the time.I never get constipated, and sometimes diarrhea, but not so often. When I wake up, the rumbling immediately starts, and I need to pass gas. If I ate too much the day before, I am in the bathroom for sure, after thirty minutes. My stool is not well formed, but also not diarrhea type, but comes out explosively, like in 5 seconds. After this, I have breakfast, and no matter what I eat, the rumbling in my intestines continues. Some days, I sense an urge to defecate and rush to the bathroom, but I only pass gas with some mucous, I get relieved for a while, but thirty minutes later, I pass gas and mucous again. So I went to the doctor and had endocsopy and colonoscopy. It came out that I had acid reflux, which explained the heartburn, but the doctor said there is nothing wrong with my intestines and it is just the way I am.My questions are:1) Does anybody have this? I never get pain, I can easily pass gas when I lie on my stomach. Just rumbling and gas all the time, and some days, mucous passage. Is this IBS? Could it be SIBO or something else, because I am never in pain, and I 've heard pain is the biggest complaint for many IBS sufferers.2)Can this be related to acid reflux? Because I have a malfunctioning stomach valve (sorry for bad english), maybe I am swallowing too much air?3) Can it be celiac?Please help me, my life is ruined because of this condition, I am always in a fear that my intestines will rumble in inappropriate moments like in classes or exams ( and they rumble for sure ) and that makes me very stressful. Any help will be appreciated.
