I am 20 years old, for awhile now I have been experiencing very weird symptoms. I used to think that no one else had them, until I found out that a friend from work has them too. Although I think that my symptoms are much more cronic than hers. I tend to get abdominal discomfort, the left side of my abdomen tends to swell and thats when I start to hear my stomach to what I like to call 'growl'. I dont know why it does it and I feel very embarrassed. I used to think that maybe someday it would go away, but its not going away as a matter of fact I think that it is getting worse. Sometimes the 'growling' comes from the upper middle part of my stomach. What is most embarrassing is that its loud. Another thing is that I can't concentrate at work. I didn't want to admit it, but I think I have digestive problems. I used to feel worthless when I was younger until I realized that this is not my fault, I DIDN'T ASK FOR THIS. I know what some of you are thinking....how bad could this be? Just think of yourself in the middle of a meeting and then suddenly without expecting it, your stomach makes weird sounds, how embarassing could this be right? Can anyone please tell me if you have any of these symptoms? Could anyone please point me in any direction where I can research? I would really appreciate it.
