User :   Hello doctor, which doctor am i speaking too?
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   I am Dr XXXXXXXX here.
User :   Hello again Dr. AAAAAAA
User :   Its me again, the guy who had the stomach ache..
Doctor :   How are you feeling today?
User :   Well yesterday, my stomach didn't ache at all, and when i am hungry, my stomach doesn't hurt anymore, it's more of a rumbling, which is normal for everyone, and today, i ate and my stomach didnt hurt at all. For dinner, i ate dairy though, but with a lactaid pill to help digest the dairy. I ate for dinner, a steak with parmesan cheese sauce, and this dairy soup with sausage, and vegatables, and after i finished my meal, my stomach started rumbling, not hurting at all, just rumbling, is it from digesting and flatus? is that normal?
Doctor :   Yes, that is normal.
User :   and also, while i was eating, i was thinking to myself, please dont let my stomach hurt because of u think it is caused by anxiety then?
User :   so since i haven't really had dairy for 1 week due to the ache, it's normal for my stomach to feel this way? all rumbly?
User :   cuz i was nervous while my stomach was rumbly
Doctor :   You need not worry.
Doctor :   You are normal.
User :   so what is the rumbling caused by?
Doctor :   The rumbling is due to the churning of food in the intestine.
Doctor :   This is normal.
Doctor :   normal only if its just the rumbling sound.
User :   like, as soon as i ate the dairy soup, it started rumbling
Doctor :   since its only following dairy product, its better that you restrict the dairy products till your symptoms are better.
User :   kk
