I also take Bentyl. It does help with stomach spasms.

Elizabeth, have you tried Dicyclomine or Bentyl? It calms cramping,bloating and pain.

I use a warm compress and sip something hot. It’s an old remedy I learned a long time ago in nursing school. It’s called “heat and hot.” There was also a concoction that the hospital pharmacy made. “Mixture#3.” It was an elixir with phenobarbital, spirit of peppermint and belladonna. A half ounce sipped slowly calmed the gut. Old remedies are sometimes best.
