have some warm milk.



ill try that:thumbsup:what about milk of magnesia?

Peppermint really helps with sore guts, generally cause by too much acid production - if that's the cause.

Either that or some antacids.

Grab a few Extra Strong mints and chew them - works for me.

just constantly painful

yakhults are awesome..
or milk

I would just ged rid of my stomach and rerplace it with a bag.

gaviscon if you dont like the liquid you can buy tablets.

If its like griping pain sounds like trap wind. It can be very very painful ive often doubled up in pain. Baby gripe water if thats all you got will work or you can get tablets called wind-eze especially for it. Eeven 99p shops carry these lines

Home Remedys For Stomach Ache

PICK JUST ONE ... DO NOT DO ALL OF THEM!
[LIST]
[*]One of the most effective home remedies for stomach ache would be to mix 1 tsp each of mint juice and limejuice. To it, add a few drops of ginger juice and a pinch of black salt. Drink this mixture to alleviate pain.
[*]Grate a small piece of ginger and extract its juice. Apply this juice on the bottom of the belly and massage it gently. This will be effective in curing stomach ache.
[*]If the stomach ache is due to acidity, the best bet would be to drink plain soda water. It would provide instant relief from the pain.
[*]In 50 ml water, mix 2 tsp lemon juice and 1 gram rock salt powder. Have this mixture three times a day.
[*]Take dry ginger, black pepper, roasted cumin seeds, dry mint leaves, coriander, asafetida, garlic and rock salt in equal quantities. Grind them well and make a fine powder. Have 1 tsp of this mixture, along with a glass of warm water, after meals.
[*]Taking three grams each of carom seeds and rock salt or common salt, along with a glass of warm water, helps in relieving a person from stomach ache.
[*]In half a cup of warm water, add a tsp each of ginger juice and castor oil. Have this mixture two times a day, to get relief from stomach ache.
[*]In a cup of water, add 20 grams aniseeds. Keep it overnight and strain the mixture the next morning. Drink it to get relief from pain.
[*]Mix one gram of rock salt and two grams of dried and crushed celery leaves. Eat it to get instant relief from stomach ache.
[*]Grind three grams of tender tamarind leaves, with enough water, to make a paste. Once it turns into a liquefied form, add a gram of rock salt. Drink this mixture to get relief from stomach ache.
[*]Combine 2 tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp ginger juice. Add ¼ tsp sugar to this mixture and have it two times in a day.
[*]Pomegranates are helpful in treating stomach ache. In a bowl of pomegranate seeds, sprinkle some salt and black pepper. Eat the seeds, while making sure to chew them properly.
[*]Grind bael (Aegle marmelos) and form a pulp. Mix it in a glass of freshly prepared buttermilk. Stir it well before drinking.
[*]Prepare a paste of fenugreek seeds. Now, add this paste to a bowl of curd. This is one of the most effective ways to treat stomach cramps and pain.
[*]In half a liter of water, add 2 grams each of black currants and fennel seeds and keep it overnight. The next morning, mash the contents in water and add a gram of sugar. Have this concoction daily, in the morning, to get relief from chronic stomach ache.[/LIST]

I had that last week after sunday dinner, thought i had wind but I ended up in hospital for 2 days with Billiac Cholic.

A poo?

Water is the best medicine. However for gastric problems a pint of milk will help settle the stomach

Gaviscon or other antacid preparations.

nah i think it was a nasty mcdonalds:whistling:had one last nyt

the company who i work for want me in at 5 though!!!:x was meant to do a 1-10

My doctor told me if you've eaten something bad it can take a couple of days to get any symptoms, so might even have been something you ate the day before yesterday. She also told me if you have eaten something bad and your being sick, its your bodies way of removing the poison. just get it out of your system, don't take anything to stop you being sick, it can make it worse in the long run.

Then tell them no. You cannot work if you are ill. Simple as. Statutory sick pay is for that reason.

If you have a gastro bug I dont think you should be working in a food environment anyway. Hope you are feeling better now or soon.

Couple of things:

If you have an upset stomach, the last thing you're supposed to take are dairy products - like milk.

I'd wager you haven't contracted food poisoning from chips at McDonalds - all of my wages on that tbh. :lol:

If you suspect you do have a gastric illness that may be food poisoning (remember it could be anything you've eaten up to around 7 days previously) - you shouldn't be handling food.
