Stomach churning - Noises

I have had this stomach condition for about 2 years, but it is begining to affect my professional life.
My stomach constantly makes churning noises (similar to what we call hunger agitation). This happens during the fist half of the day in 80% of the time, every day. Strange as it may see, it occurs more often when there is food in my stomach than not.

At work I attend meetings regularly and it is a total embarrassment when my stomach make these noises, sometimes very loud as well. During a one hour meeting, there would be 10 - 15
episodes. As a matter of fact, I can here and feel it now as I post this question. I take maalox tablets which helps a little.
This is just ruining my career.
What could be the cause of this? Is there something I can take at least when I am attending meetings at work to prevent this from occuring.
Could nerves or nervousness play a role in this stomach problem?
Please help.

Yep, me too.  Don't know what's causing it, but I've always had stomach issues....
Let me know if you figure out what it is.  Makes gurgling noises.  Not always at the same time though.

Have you had any tests done? I also have gurgling in my stomach. Also mild pain like someone has punched me in the gut. At times I can trace my digestive process with gaslike discomfort through the system. For the past year this typically occurred only after the ingestion of alcoholic beverages, even after just one. I've had stool tests, sigmoidscopy, colonoscopy, barium test, and an ultrasound. All negative with the exception of a pinhead size inflammation after the colonscopy. A biopsy was taken with a negative result. Doctor suspects Crohn's but after reading extensively I question that. Diarrhea has occurred but limited with no blood evident. Anybody got any ideas?
