    It's 4:50 AM here at the moment, and I 've been trying to fall asleep since 1:00. I've been having no success because I feel nauseated and my tummy is super upset. I feel like I have to call ralph on the big white telephone... ...

    Ruby- try drinking ginger ale and eating something bland - like plain toast or saltine crackers. That always helps me when I have an upset tummy. Scrambled eggs (with light cheese) are another "comfort food" - but I would try the crackers and ginger ale first! I hope you feel better soon.

    Well since there is no ginger ale in the house, I'll try crackers and toast. Thanks for the advice doxie.

    Having survived chemo I feel qualified to offer more options... baked potato, club soda with bitters (really works), any kind of ginger - tea, crystalized, snaps. I keep a ginger root in the freezer to make tea from but you can also get ginger tea bags to keep on hand for just such an occasion. I also keep a jar of pickled ginger (pink - the kind they serve with sushi) in the fridge.
    Count your blessings!

    Chamomile tea always helps me when I feel nauseous. I hope everyone who is ill feels better really soon.

    I used to drink 7Up when I was little-the bubbles helped move (one way or another) the upset in the stomach. RubyPhoenix, I hope you're feeling better. A cold wet washcloth always helped, too, on the back of the neck. I don't know why.

    Feel better soon, RubyPhoenix! I don't care for 7-up since they altered their formulation - I just can't stomach the aftertaste it leaves. I much prefer Sierra Mist for nausea. No nasty aftertaste to upset my tummy further.. And saltine crackers always help - believe it or not, the fat-free version are the best! Much crispier and lighter on the tummy

    Gut - thanks so much for the ginger tip! My next trip to the grocery store, I will be picking up those items to have on hand.

    Vanilla helps too. Which is one of the reasons why drinking a coke or pepsi can also help soothe the tummy. It has vanilla in it.

    They actually sell ginger capsules in the vitamin department of some stores now--I keep them on hand for nausea, as I like that there's no side effects. They work to prevent seasickness too, without the sleepiness. I'd recommend anyone to keep a bottle around, just in case.

    Ginger pills work great for upset tummies. So does ginger ale, stirred, so you get the fizz out. Drink it flat. With toast if you can.
