Oooh! Ouch! Yes indeed, a queasy belly on top of bouts of bad pain can be nasty indeed. But if "this, too" does not pass, isn't there a sonic device to break the sucker up to it passes more easily? Best of luck to you!

Bad nausea can be just as endless.   Right now, with a kidney stone up against my bladder, I get mild nausea, but periods of debilitating pain.   But this too, shall pass.
