strange stomach movements

I know it is a weard question ..but has any one experienced some kind of movement down in the belly that looks like baby movement of a pregnant woman ??

i can actually see my belly rise up and down ..i feel some thing moving inside me ..did urine and blood tests many times all came back negative for pregnancy..

as i suffer from ibs ..i assume it could be gas or the colon moving !! but my tummy is growing resulting in a bloat that i have never had before ..is this just one of the ibs symptoms ??

Hi, could be wind taking a trip around your insides. Try peppermint after meals to help get rid of gas.

I experienced exactly this long before I figured out what it was (and it wasn't another baby). I experienced feelings like a baby kicking in my belly. Years later I developed muscle fasciculations elsewhere on my body and realized that these things in my belly were twitches of deeper abdominal muscles. That is what they were for me anyways. I get muscle twitching after I eat sometimes. I am not sure why, but taking supplemental magnesium does help reduce it.

yes I also read during my research that dehydration and vitamins and minerals imbalance or deficiency can cause muscle spasms and / or involuntary muscle movement..but I wondered why only in my stomach ..exactly under my belly button !! still puzzled and still searching as my doctor said all tests are clear and may be it is just accumulated gas 😕 i'm still not convinced.

Thanks for sharing 🌸 ..i'll bring this subject to my doctor next visit .

Endometriosis can make your stomach bloat like that and give IBS symptoms!

yess sure ..if i find any thing that could help or relieve our symptoms I will definitely post it here ..I was shocked when I read that parasites living in the intestines can cause these movements !! they feed from the host ( which is me 😓) they move and even urinate inside the host 😷..hope this is not my case 😔

Yes, also get this n im 65 n definately not pregnant !'

I have always assumed its just a bad build up of wind . I personally take Windsetlers which help break up the wind therefore reducing the bloated look n feeling.

If really bad will take this for a 24 hour period but for me i just take when a little wind.

Good luck.

yeah ..maybe i need something to target the wind tour down in the gut ..it is not just the feeling ..it is seeing my belly move that actually freaks me out 🤔 is Windsetler a medicine or you mean a group of Meds that settle down the wind ?? is there a specific brand for this ??

Thanks for your help 🌹

Do you think you could do two days just drinking liquids?? I have a friend who tells me that does the trick for her....Sometimes she just does one day. Anyway, good luck to you!

Hi Betty ! how are you now ? hope you're feeling better 🌷 ..well as i'm already starving my self inorder to decrease bathroom trips or as I call them Horrible (prison hostage) 😳 i'm afraid that drinking only liquids will worsen my diarrhea ..does your friend suffer from constipation or diarrhea or both ??

Hi Eternity, From Diarrhea only, I believe. I can understand (completely!) why people are afraid to try certain things or new ways.

You might try Googling Benefits of a short liquid diet... and see if anything some articles say might be of some interest to you... I do know that one of the 'big' things a short few day liquid diet does is 'give your intestines a rest'... which can be very healing in itself. Anyway, good luck to you. Don't give up! Something will help you!! Take care now.

Yes. Apparently it's quite common, but don't know what causes it. Not only in ibs sufferers but also crohns.

I've had this for about 5 years now and it's not a natural phenomena. After extensive observation I have concluded that it is a or a number of spirits. The pressure is coming from outside the body. I now live next to an A-road and the undulating pressures or a knot inside my stomach are ever prevalent and they bring with them sounds of cars passing like rockets although I'm 3 stories up and have double glazing. The only solution I've found is to relax the stomach and after alot of fuss (ie. doors slamming, people shouting outside and incredible volumes of rocket cars as well as muscles all over the back of my body shuddering with incredible power. Also, my temples (on the sides of my head) are also experiencing rhythmic pressures. All these symptoms co-inside with a variety of ludicrous 'engine' type sounds which become extremely abstract the more you 'let go' in a response similar to a tick biting down when you try to pull it out. I'm not a hippy dippy type but in trying to understand how I've been vibrating for a number of years now I've settled on the conclusion that they are spirits. The pressures are alien (ie. not from my body and not in fact muscles spasming. The key is to not freak out no matter how much they 'the spirits' attempt to derail your relaxing with high energy shuddering and door slamming/argy bargy with people shouting outside, loud knocks in the walls and maybe hammering etc.

These are playful but dispassionate supernatural forces who can be forced out with will but after so many years I think my best option is to relax them out and I have had some success with this. They also climb inside pipes and continually break the central heating and hot water (hopefully an engineer tomorrow can fix this problem as it appears to be water pressure being affected).

They may also arrive at your door with random and unlikely reasons such as food delivery to wrong address or even police etc. You can recognize these 'mimics' by their lack of understanding of human interaction and appear childlike and a limited intelligence.

They have also taken to making the fridge emit loud bussing sounds followed more recently by a loud 'crack' noise. These noises very in intensity or location based on how much you have 'clung' to the physical discomfort, hence giving them a target with which to intensify the focus of their attacks.

I made the mistake of giving in to being vibrated in a squalid apartment I was given by the council after being made homeless by my landlord after I somehow got stuck in my flatmates room followed by a roller coaster ride of insane manhandling by 'police' and locked in various 'institutions' for a number of years, having to relinquish my freelance graphic design career to focus on the problem.

The key is to relax your stomach and muscles and not focus on negative thoughts as these are the intentions of these sprites creature things.

Do not worry though as your body and mind naturally combats these intrusions unless you focus on them and override the natural defense systems in your body.

Western medicine appears to have no answers to these problems so although a scientific person, I had to resort to admitting all these phenomena were supernatural in origin.

They are trying to stress you out in order to gain control of your mind and basically send you on silly fruitless wild goose chases to solve problems in your life they have caused. This to them is 'humor'.

Sweetheart, I’m going to say this with compassion and good intention...what you’re suffering from there sounds awful, You need to go to your doctor asap and describe all of this. There is help for you.

I may be mad but unless I've passed into another dimension (possible) this may be how the world has always been. If whacky beings start inhabiting your life and you start getting lingering looks from strangers wherever you go (I don't look weird it's not that) from people who are in some way strange seeming as in their behaviour does not seem quite right... Why are they standing on the spot fixated by their phone for hours on end? Why are they walking and swinging their arms wildly as they go or looking with their gaze fixed straight ahead with arched backs and looking so purposeful as to their purpose seemingly to be just to look purposeful, gliding along or swaggering about clumsily always with a seeming sense of intense self satisfaction.

PS. They may also be children or birds.
