Hi.
Thanks for your query and an elucidate history.

The noises the stomach make is called '' Borborygmi'' and the probable reasons can be as follows:
-Intestinal obstruction
-Aerophagia causing excessive gas
-Intestinal infection causing gas formation
-Anxiety and stress add on such problems

I would advise you the following:
-X-ray of the abdomen in standing position.
-CT scan of the abdomen with double contrast toi find for intestinal obstruction / mass/ cancer etc.
-Routine investigations of the stool, urine and blood to rule of thyroid, live problems

The further treatment will obviously be based on the findings ...
