Hi all,When I have pain, which can be a lot of the time, it tends to just be in my left side, under ribs down to hip area. Achey, burning, tingling, prickly - all of those can describe how it feels, I do get the odd twitch/spasum every now and then, well I think it is my bowel that is doing that.Anywhat I was wondering why it just seems to be pain in that area? I mean I have only had a couple of occasion of pain in different locations, right side or all over...! Does anyone have any ideas? What is the most common location of pain, anyone know>?Thanks all,

Altoids happen to have a pretty large dose of real peppermint oil. Any candy with peppermint oil will work. Altoids are a pretty strong mint so have to have a fair amount and it is real peppermint oil, not some artificial flavor which won't be the same.

I used to get mine at a local pharmacy. Used to get them all the time when I was younger so thats how I knew they had them. Now being in the US (for a while yet) you can get the bloody things everywhere.
