The Cause Of The Stomach Often Sounds Like Water?
, some days my stomach often sounds like the sound of water being boiled. And that makes me both uncomfortable and worried. Yesterday I already went to the clinic. But the doctor said it was only a problem in the stomach. When I asked if there was a problem with the intestine, he said there wasn’t. Could also check his stomach by pressing gt, the doctor said if it hurts? I answered no. So what exactly is this? And how to cure a stomach that keeps sounding?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Stomach sounds are a normal thing that is caused by bowel movements, which are called peristalsis. This peristalsis can cause stomach sounds. This movement usually increases in several conditions, such as:
After eating because the intestines work to digest and encourage food
Flatulence or a lot of gas / air in the intestine
Irritable bowel syndrome
Consumption of foods / beverages that contain gas, such as soft drinks
If a complaint is disturbing, several things you can do to reduce complaints include:
Eat regularly, try to eat smaller portions but often
Don't skip meals
Avoid sodas, alcohol, coffee and tea
Eat fruits and vegetables
Sufficient fluid needs
Manage stress well
These complaints are generally harmless but if complaints are felt very often and disturbing especially when accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, difficult bowel movements, or abdominal pain, you should consult a doctor for further examination to determine the cause of the complaint. Treatment will be adjusted according to the underlying cause.
Thank you and hope that helps
