#BeatBellyCramps with Buscopan #Giveaway

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.

For more information visit StomachCramping.ca and your local pharmacist if you have any questions.

Do you know what triggers your belly cramps?

    My belly cramps are triggered if I don’t get around to eating until late in the morning or lunch time. When I do this, as soon as I eat, I get cramps. Also when I eat really cold food or take medication on an empty stomach.

Not sure if its age related but i still love my spicy foods. sometimes I get cramps due to stress also, I try not to stress the little things because its not worth it, instead I save it for what matters. that makes a big difference

    Right now my belly pains are from my meds, which I’ve only taken for 3 days and I’m going to go find out what else I can do. I had my ovaries removed in July so I have some weird mystery stuff going on right now. I probably have a lot of stress because I am not handling the meds very well, but the side effects are worse then menopause, so, yeah, GOODBYE. I also can no longer handle very much spicy food and take a prescription for acid reflux too LOL…just a bundle of bad
