Here are the 10 most common stomach problems and what to take for relief.

The common cause for diarrhoea is mild food poisoning. According to Amit Bhan, M.D., a gastroenterologist at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, there's no other fix for this than the passage of time. Nevertheless, you can take Pepto-Bismol to help attack the diarrhea-causing bacteria in your system so you can sleep and function during the day. You can also take Imodium, which slows down the speed at which fluids move through your intestines.

Believe it or not, farting is actually a sign of a healthy body. There are 2 causes of farting: eating gas-forming food and swallowing air. To remedy gas problems, you can take over-the-counter anti-gas drugs like Mytanta Gas. Beano is also effective.

Cramps are very common during a woman's menstrual period. To ease cramps and lessen bleeding, take an Advil or Ibuprofen 12 to 24 hours before you're expecting your period, Cossler says. Then take the prescribed amount every three to six hours for three days.
