My stomach hurts every day. It doesn't matter what I eat, it always makes my stomach hurt and I have to use the restroom. I have a hard time eating late at night also and going to bed on it because within an hour my belly hurts and I am up for a while.

Yeah. I have taken pepto bismol a few times in the past. I'm not sure why everything I eat makes my stomach hurt though, but I just does.

Well Marcie, If you ate cabbage and have gas, you gotta let the gas rip. That will help your belly. The baking soda will help get some of the gas out of you, you can also try some tums or rolaids if you don't have any gas pills. Good luck, get tootin Marcie, you will feel better, I promise.

Happy Friday to you too. I hope you can get a car soon, its hell to be without wheels. I have some marigolds growing around the garden, that helps keep other critters away. The other place I planted flowers, marigolds and moon flowers they didn't do so good. Have your moon flowers started to bloom yet, I have one that will be blooming soon.

I usually take Pepto Bismal, or Tums or Rolaids. I get heartburn more than stomach aches. I haven't found anything to help with a real bad stomach ache other then time.

I have too all that, but sometimes all you half to do is one thing, Use the Bathroom. LOL. It is the truth. But eating different things can mess your stomach up to like dairy products I can't handle that. especially Milk and Ice-cream.

Hi there. I had an upset guts last night and to ease it, I drank 2 cups of cool boiled water, which in my case has always worked... Ive never heard of "Baking Soda with water" to remedy a sore guts though, something we may have to try if ever our cool boiled water gives out on us. Yes and cabbage does bring on a sore guts, due to being full of gases... Thanks for the "Baking Soda" info...

Myself and my family members are vegetarians and we use a lot of ginger, ginger paste in food preparation which is a very good digestion agent. Besides this, I drink a lot of water even during winter and most of our foods are easily digestable. My son used to get a lot of stomach ache (say once a week) and on examination, it was found that he developed appendicitis. AFter operation (removal of it), he still has the stomach ache and it was found out to be colitis. IT took almost 6 months to rectify the problem and touchwood, now he is alright. Some persons constitution of body are sensitive to foods and sensitive to many other things and because of this I suppose they suffer from stomach ache.

Baking soda with orange juice tastes better but I have used baking soda and water before. It helps relieve the gas but it also makes you belch alot. But your tummy will feel less bloated.

I hope you are feeling better today Marcia. Its been a long time since I had a stomach ache. I take medicine for my heartburn so I think that helps reduce some of the acid which in turn prevents me from getting a stomach ache. I am not sure about that. But anyway, doesn't peppermint help with a belly ache? I have heard that before.
