My husband is 66 years old. We have been married 10 years and his stomach is starting to worry me. His stomach constantly rumbles really loud. I've never heard anyone's stomach sound like his. It sounds like a thunderstorm. He has diarreah and sometimes at night he messes the bed. He is so embarassed by this. He doesn't eat that much but yet has a big hard stomach. Can you help us?
hi, it could be a number of digestive disorders, a virus, infection, gastritis, food poisioning,parasite infestation, or God forbid stomach cancer, for piece of mind, you really should see a gp and have him undergo some tests, i would recommend an upper endoscopy because of his age and the possibility of cancer, but first your gp might run some blood tests, stool sample, h-pylori infection breath test, or might try anti-biotics to begin with.
