Abdominal pain self care
f your abdominal pain is mild, and there are no other problems like bleeding, you can do plenty to look after yourself and ease the pain and discomfort.
You can stay well hydrated by drinking plenty of clear non-alcoholic fluids. If you have a medical condition which restricts your fluid intake, check with your doctor about how much fluid you can have.

There are a number of medicines which can help, including:
paracetamol to ease pain (you should get medical advice before using other painkillers for abdominal pain)
charcoal tablets or similar for wind pain
medicines to ease spasms
medicines to stop diarrhoea.
