how to stop your stomach from making those sounds Watch

    im closing in to my exams, and really don't want my stomach to rumble like it does now. i mean, maybe an hour after i eat something it starts to go crazy! this is especially distracting during my tests, and it is so embarrassing! i am expected to get 200/200 in my Maths, however i find that whenever my stomach rumble in a maths exam it cripples my grade to about 140/200, i cant afford to lose 60 marks (2 grades!) because of my stomach!

    please help me out here, how can i stop my stomach rumbling? (i can feel the gases moving around in my stomach when it rumbles, and i severely doubt that it is hunger.)

    thanks!
    preferably something that doesnt involve medicines

    Have you tried just simply drinking more water?

    60 marks because of a stomach rumble? Are you sure? Perhaps your predictions are far exceeding the reality of your grade? No offense. But seriously, losing 60 marks simply because of a stomach rumble doesn't sound very believable.

    Drink more water. It helps.

    You cannot possible drop so many marks because your stomach grumbles, unless it causes a lot of pain?

    I would suggest going to see a GP and eating meals at certain times together your body used to an organised regime. Also drink a lot of water.

    its 60 marks because its not just one rumble. its repeated maybe once per 5 minutes for the long 2 hour test. not to mention it lasts for maybe 15 seconds or so. lately i seem to have it under some cotnrol but water seems to worsen it?

    You could try antacid tablets before you go in? That might help

    I don't know if this will still be useful but this used to happen to me as well. Drink about 1/2 pint of milk after eating your breakfast and I don't know how, but it settles over your stomach and masks the noise. It's making so much noise because you're probably a loud digester, don't worry about it though, people will be too busy concentrating on their own exam to worry about your stomach. Ignore it. Another tip though not as effective as the milk is to push your stomach other as this can mask the noise, don't tense it as it makes it louder. Good luck!

    The exact same thing used to happen to me. I make sure to have a decent breakfast before the exam and take something to eat before I go in. I also make sure to take in a bottle of water in case my stomach chose to ****ing growl. I don't know if it's got anything to do with nerves but it used to put me off a lot too. I'd anticipate the next sound lol and lose focus.

    I am sure that it is nerves. Eat a good meal before hand and take something in with you to eat, or use hard candies and water to help keep your grumbles and rumbles at bay.
