intestinal sounds

for the last several months my intestines are gurgling. Pretty much in the center and right side of my abdomen. Not painful but noisy and odd. I am getting worried that it is something more serious. Does anyone get this?

Have you looked into leaky gut? I don't know about these symptoms of gurgling as I have not read about or experienced them but I certainly believe in the leaky gut theory. I suggest that reading about it would be a good starting point. If you are on meds, there are plenty of possible GI side effects. If not, there are links for arthritis and Chrons as well as other GI issues. Go see a Dr if you are worried. Better safe than sorry!

Giulia Enders ("The surprisingly charming science of your gut") explanation at ~minute 5:55, might be an innocent/ innocuous explanation of the gurgling intestinal sounds, nmhart:

. . ."Like those funny rumbling noises that happen when you're in a group of friends or at the office conference table, going, like, "Merrr, merrr..." This is not because we're hungry. This is because our small intestine is actually a huge neat freak, and it takes the time in between digestion to clean everything up, resulting in those eight meters of gut -- really, seven of them -- being very clean and hardly smelling like anything. It will, to achieve this, create a strong muscular wave that moves everything forward that's been leftover after digestion. This can sometimes create a sound, but doesn't necessarily have to always. So what we're embarrassed of is really a sign of something keeping our insides fine and tidy. . . . " [Transcript: ted.com/talks/giulia_enders... ]

Best wishes, nmhart. ☺️ 🙏 🍀 🌺 🌞
