Stomach Pain

About ten hours ago I had what I think were too many peanuts and was drinking wine at the time. Even before midnight I got a severe belly ache with bloating and cannot sleep. I am pretty sure the major culprit is the peanuts even though I know the wine did not help. I really am looking for some home remedy to get me through this, but all I can find in the house are Pepto Bismol and Ginger Ale.  Will these do any good?  I can find a pharmacy or store, but not until I feel halfway better to brave driving a few blocks.  Suggestions for today?  I know what not to do in the future.

Eating peanuts and the drinking both can cause belly pain. This can be due to gastritis or hyperacidity or heartburn. Pepto-Bismol is an over-the-counter drug used for treatment of nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhoea, and other temporary discomforts of the stomach and gastrointestinal tract. Ginger ale is often used as a home remedy to alleviate indigestion or motion sickness. Hence you can take them and once you feel slightly better you can get antacids and anti-emetics form the pharmacy. Hope this helps.
