Having a stomach ache is such a terrible and uncomfortable feeling. We all have remedies for getting rid of stomach aches. But, unfortunately, some don't work. Instead of living with your stomach ache while ol' grandpa tries his old-school, at-home remedy (come on, we know that never worked for curing a stomach ache), try these tips and techniques. 

Remedies to Cure Your Stomach Ache 

  • Pepto-Bismol can be helpful to ease a stomach ache.
  • Grab a clear soda such as 7UP or Sprite and pour a little in a glass and mix it up with a spoon, stirring until there is less fizz. Make sure there isn’t a lot of carbonation and take some small sips. 
  • Ingest ginger, such as ginger ale, ginger tea, or eat fresh ginger.
  • Drink water.
  • If you are nauseous, try something with peppermint. Peppermint can help nausea. 
  • Eat a couple plain crackers.
