I'm curious what others have found works for dealing with stomach aches. I've been getting them more frequently, usually after breakfast. Drinking a lot of fluid seemed to help, but they seem to be getting more persistent. They're not too bad at this point, just uncomfortable. I'll probably pickup some Tums or maybe Pepto Bismol (I'm already taking an anti-diarrheal though) and see if that helps. Or have you had your doctor prescribe something more powerful? I have some Protonix left over from my first flare 2.5 years ago.

Buscopan. It is available over the counter, though my Dr. gives me an R/X for it as my Crohn's really has my tummy acheing all the time. The aches have virtually disappeared since I've been on it. I take a 10mg pill 4 times a day. I love it, and NO side effects!!

Are you talking about an upset stomach or a crampy stomach? For the cramps, I usually take Bentyl or Librax. But for an upset stomach I try to use one of my nausea meds (Zofran or Phenergan). If neither of those work, its left to my heating pad.

It feels like a cramp, on the right side of my stomach. I don't know if it's ulcers or what. I plan on mentioning it to my GE next time.
