Doctor: Dr. Bob, Medical Doctor replied 8 months ago

I see. You may be feeling peristalsis in the transverse colon. This is the large intestine, which comes up the right side of the abdomen and crosses across the front of the abdomen over the the left side where it then turns down toward the rectum. If you are on the thin side, you may not have any fat between the transverse colon and the abdominal wall. In cases like this, the movements of stool and gas through the intestine, and the contractions of the intestine itself can be felt. This can result in vibrations, bubbling and gurgling (borborygmus), a feeling of pressure or even cramping. This is completely benign.

can you please tell me how it can be rectified ?Is there any chances of problem in Kidney?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
this is consistently happening only on the left side ...
Doctor: Dr. Bob, Medical Doctor replied 8 months ago

The kidneys are more in the back. When they get infected or a stone, the pain is almost always in the back or flank or lower abdomen. The location you describe is more likely to be the colon, or possibly the stomach. The best way to deal with this is to avoid large meals and carbonated drinks. Increase your dietary fiber (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, etc) and take simethicone (Gas-x) with every meal to keep gas in the intestines from building up. Also, try to have a bowel movement every day so stool and gas do not get backed up into the descending colon on the left side.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
