Hi Lori -- try a heating pad. It works well, and usually I just have to lay flat on my back until the pain subsides. Another thing....sounds silly, but my boyfriend rubs my tummy, and it feels sooooo good. Really helps with the pain. Hey, try and get on a probiotic if you aren't; it's really helped with that "kicked in your gut" feeling with me. Take care, hope you feel better soon.
