All of a sudden for the past 3 days, my stomach is grumbling

This answer was rated:

All of a sudden for the past 3 days, my stomach is grumbling and rumbling. I am now experiencing wet flatulence. I have not changed anything in my diet, except drinking more water and I am now using a different generic blood pressure med. Same med different generic company. I took gas x and Imodium. The Imodium helped a with the grumbling and rumbling, but not with the burping and gas. Any Ideas?
Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and am ready to help.

I am sorry you are having these symptoms.

this could be a temporary viral enteritis and gastritis infection going on which might have to run its course and will get better with time.

or it could be something else going on like a stomach H Pylori infection which can irritate the stomach and cause more stomach acid production and gas.

immodium does not help with excessive stomach acid production.

do you have a doctor you can see to test you for H Pylori stomach infection?

you might need stronger stomach acid blocking agents to help decrease gas.

you might need testing to check for celiac spruce wheat glutten sensitivity which can cause excessive bowel gas production.

I'm glad the imodium helped a little.
