This summer has been a whirlwind of busyness; we’ve visited our local zoo, a drive-in theatre, a hotel with a waterpark, an amusement park, been to a few family BBQs and even endured a move to a new town.
Just thinking about all of it again is giving me belly cramps. I’m not lying- my stomach is literally twisting right now. Knowing your personal triggers for stomach and gut cramps is very important. For instance, I know being highly stressed along with certain foods like chocolate, wine and coffee are a few of my triggers and I should stay away from them but apparently I’m a glutton for punishment…because I CAN’T!
The mixture of fried foods, alcohol, yummy BBQ and stress due to a new home, new job location and my son going to a new school plus life with a ‘threenager’ is enough to make even the strongest stomach suffer.
Thankfully the elliptical is starting to become my best friend. It’s a great way to work off some of the yumminess I ate during the summer break and a wonderful way to relieve stress. However, when all else fails there’s always Buscopan.
What is Buscopan?
Buscopan is a product that’s been used worldwide for 60+ years to relieve muscle spasms and associated pains. It can do this by relaxing those tight cramping muscles in the stomach, intestine and bowel. Ask your pharmacist about Buscopan which is behind the counter.
