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.
