Nibble on some Candied Ginger.  I carry a piece of Candied Ginger in a baggie in my handbag.

Water with fresh lemon also helps.

Right now I have some some stomach flu bug, I am sipping homemade  Gingerbeer ( not alxoholic) and I am nibbling on ginger.  Hopefully this bug will pass soon.

stomach issue

Hi - 12 hours after I had the PM placed, I began having stomach issues.  Felt like a bubble, not nausea.  Ended up in ER where they diagnosed GERD.  Treated for that but the feeling continued.  Long story short, constantly felt full and lost 8 pounds and then ended up 8 weeks later with lead revision and next day pericardiocentesis.  9 weeks after that, still having the bubble as well as chest/back pain, had MRI - pericarditis!  Treated with colcrys and Motrin.  Feeling much better and finally, the bubble is gone!  If your tummy doesn't settle down, keep after your EP - have an ECHO and don't let them tell you it's nothing, because if it doesn't get better, it might be something.
