What techniques do you guys use to help distract you/help you feel better when you're having intestinal cramps?Things that have helped me:putting a cold washcloth against my head-Having a loud fan in the bathroom on my face (the air against my face helps immensely)-Lying on my back seems to be the best position for me when I lay downWhat are your guys' suggestions?

Hot bathDoing something to distract the mind (so an interesting book or watch a good movie)Peppermint (I usually use Altoids)Antispasmodics, especially sublingual versions that tend to get into the blood stream faster.

Some people get relief from Bentyl, you could ask your doctor about it. It used to work for me a little bit.
