Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
As you said, I too am sure that you do not have asthma
. Hence please stop the inhalation spray. The CT scan
tests are within normal results. It may not be common problems for flute players to have these symptoms, however, please do continue playing the flute.
The cause of noises in the abdomen while playing the flute is the gas in the stomach and intestines. While playing the flute, you are be inhaling and exhaling air, some of which is also entering the esophagus
and the gastrointestinal system.
This extra air is moving along the intestines, causing the abdominal sounds. This is the reason you burp after playing the flute, where the excess air is being expelled out of your GI system.
In all probability, the main reason is that your method of flute playing is not just making air pass through the trachea into and out of the lungs alone, as it should be, but as I said, some air is entering the GI system. Maybe by correcting the way you play the flute you can overcome this problem.
Play it in such a way that you concentrate air moving in and out of the trachea and lungs only, and does not enter the esophagus and the GI system. This concentration on your part should overcome this problem, I am sure.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
