Ever since I went vegetarian, I've been having stomach problems. My stomach growls all the time, even when I'm not hungry. It's very loud, obnoxious and embarrassing. I'm not sure what I can do to prevent this. Whenever I'm in class, I have to cover my stomach with a jacket or a book to muffle the noise. It's very embarrassing and uncomfortable. I'm not sure what caused this and what I can do to stop it. HELP!!!!
My guesses would be gas or premenstrual noises.
Sometimes the ovaries or whatever can make a lot of noise when they're getting ready to menstruate. It happened to me a few times & other female relatives too. I've been asked if I'm hungry because it's so loud others can hear it. I don't know if anything can be done about that.
Try Beano to see if it's gas. That you can do something about.
If it's gas...is it constipation? Even a little? Be sure to eat enough fat and drink enough water when you increase your fiber intake. Sometimes it's necessary to increase fiber content gradually--some people can't tolerate a sharp increase.
Sounds like gas to me too.
This might go away on its own.
Dairy used to give me horrible gas, so if you're eating more dairy to make up for the lack of meat, I would suggest cutting it out for now and see if that helps.
Also, chew slowly. :-) I hope that helps.
