If you continue.: Your stomach is reacting to your indiscretion. If you don't continue to abuse it, you will not suffer. Stick to a bland diet with small meals and your stomach will not be hurting. A plant-based, whole food diet will result in the least health problems in the future. Right now, you may get relief with some Tums (calcium carbonate) or Rolaids; which are over the counter antacids.
