Ghrelin is wreaking havoc


Senior Member
Ghrelin is wreaking havoc in my stomach. I'm going to have my meal now. See you later.

Note: Ghrelin, the hormone that makes you hungry, also makes food, and food smells, irresistibly appealing. (Scientific American)

The question of this thread is whether "wreaking havoc" is properly used in this context.

    If X is wreaking havoc in your stomach then that implies X is in your stomach at the time.

    If X is wreaking havoc with your stomach then havoc is occurring within your stomach but X may be somewhere else, e.g. in your bloodstream.
