Loud noises - Not sure if symptom of IBS

Hi, I have not been diagnosed with IBS but I am wondering if I maybe have a symptom of it or something else. I'm a 39 year old male. For the last year or so I've been having these very loud and constant bowel noises when I eat, and usually for an hour later. It's embarrassing, the noise is so loud and random, either groaning sounds or like passing gas internally, if that makes sense. Other than the weird noise my abdomen gets distended after eating, even small meals, it feels hard, especially near my navel. It's getting more awkward eating around others, not sure what to do to fix these issues. Thanks for taking the time to read, any advice welcome.

IBS isn't a disease really, it's just one of many descriptions docs use for digestive problems they either can't or don't want to diagnose and treat.  You may be eating too fast.  You may be allergic to dairy or wheat or other common food allergens.  You may have some inflammation in your system from something.  There are many things you can try and see it fixes this, such as common natural remedies that help with reducing stomach inflammation or changing when you eat, how fast you eat (you might not be chewing enough, for example), what you eat, etc.  Docs won't really help you with that.  Peace.
