Lower abdomen/groin rumbling when I'm at school Watch
As I only get them at school, I wondered if it could be due to stress or anxiety of some sort? I have tried to find out if it is caused by a particular food that I eat but it occurs every day at school regardless or how much or what I eat. It is quite problematic and embarrassing for me as it is loud and discomforting, especially with the sound resembling that of flatulence.
If anyone has any experience with a similar issue or has any clue of what might be the cause, please let me know!
Other things it could be is an overactive GI tract (these are the noises you can hear). Some people's GI tract is naturally a bit noisier than others. There's no correlation with milk or anything is there (and, along with the sounds, do you also actually get flatulence)?
Are you sure that's the issue? It doesn't seem to depend on how much food I have ate, especially on the weekends where I seem to skip lunch most days and never have these problems.
It could be food or drink
It could be just how your system works
Do you eat lots of mints at school or chew gum?
Some contain Sortbitol and xylitol which will have this effect
The best solution is a trip to your gp if it bothers you.
