Stomach growls loudly every night

I am trying to see if anyone has similar symptoms and can help me diagnose or pinpoint my problem. I think my doctor would just brush it off if I went, so maybe if anybody knows what this could be, it would be easier to check any other symptoms.

For about the past month now, my stomach has been growling excessively. Usually after I eat and sit down and mostly after dinner, but growls really loud and often. It doesn't hurt, but it just feels weird and bothers me a lot. 

My other symptoms don't seem related to this, but I've had acid reflux for a little more than a year with my symtoms only flaring up every now and then (not everyday like the stomach growling) and I don't take any medication or supplements daily/around the same time this started happening.

Does/has this happened to anyone? Should I be worried that it's the beginning symptom of something more serious?

Thanks in advance!

      Have your doctor check your sedimentary rate. It can indicate inflammation in the body. With your reflux issue you may have some inflammation in the rest of your digestive tract. Have you had a colonoscopy lately ? How old are you ?

      Ah I see.. it has been about a month since these symptoms so I should go to the doctor.

      I'm 22 years old and I haven't had a colonscopy, but I have had an endoscopy about 6 months ago and was diagnosed with esophagitis.

    Acid reflux and growling stomach could be related and may suggest a digestive problem.  Try keeping a food diary to check for intolerances.  If you have had these problems for a month, you should see your doctor.

    Hi Rachelk123 i have the same symptoms as you but i have excessive and extreme pain with a weight loss of now 13 kilos in 15 weeks, You should maybe think about drinking a small glass of milk about 30 minutes before you go to bed as i find that helps sometimes. good luck
