This: This could be gastroenteritis from a virus. Recommend that you sip water initially. It is important to try to stay ahead on fluids, so that you don't become dehydrated. You may wish to drink slightly flattened ginger ale or to nibble on crystalized ginger. If you become dizzy or lightheaded when going from sitting to standing or from lying to sitting, you may be dehydrated. If that occurs you may need to go to an acute care clinic for intravenous fluids. Tylenol (acetaminophen) may help to sooth your pain. If symptoms last over a week, recommend being assessed. ...Read more

Study: I think it's critical to study the behavior of your stomach cramps. How are they related to your meals? How about bowel movements? How about anger or anxiety triggering them? Any new meds over last month? If no discernible pattern - a structural abnormality, rather than functional might be at the root of it. If this is the case a thorough gastroenterology evaluation might be needed. ...Read more
