Abdominal noise

Abdominal noise daily. More so when laying down. No pain but very rare I have a bloating feeling in my stomach. Poop is not long pieces anymore, comes out in smaller chunks for years now. This noise started maybe 1 year or so ago. I started taking a variety of supplements that help in digestive health and functionality, also a multi vitamin and a probiotic. Which seemed to help a little, I sure do feel healthier since starting the regiment. Only causes I can think of is daily suboxone use (6 years) from a prior Percocet dependency due to a femur break. I suspect that is the cause. I believe it’s known to back you up. I started to wean myself down 6 months or so ago. Will take 2 years I suspect to be completely done. I thought it was lactose intolerance but I do not think that is the case. As I have tested myself by eating huge milkshakes with no adverse effects. It very well be good or allergy related as some days I have no noise. I recently had blood work done (none related) and I am super healthy so my doctor says. I do not know what was exactly tested for as it was a required physical for a dental surgery I had. I do not have health insurance, i would greatly appreciate any advice I can get. Thank you very much !

Sorry if this is a second post.  Or sure how any of this works. Came to this from a email.

Hello and welcome to the forum.  Sorry you are having abdominal noises. But this is your only symptom?  Or are you also having constipation?

Yes I would say this is my only symptom. Sometimes it’s a hard stool but not often. I find it strange there isn’t any pain involved, I guess that’s a good thing because it may show it’s not something actually wrong with me. I don’t drink, I don’t smoke. The noise makes it hard to fall asleep. Iv read that blockages can lead to serious issues. Why I wanted to ask a few people. Thank you for the response and help by the way

Have you ever talked to your doctor about this?

Though this isn't from a medical site, it's a good article - https://www.foxnews.com/health/a-noisy-stomach-normal-or-unhealthy


If you are having bowel movements, it's not likely that you're blocked. Since it's your only symptom, the sounds are probably normal, but it's definitely worth getting a doctor to check it out to know for sure.
