I agree that you have to get your stomach to relax, a warm bath is soothing as well as the massage that Jerz suggested. Hot cup of tea and a warm water bottle against your tummy can also help. Movement is important, bend and stretch your body gently.  Do you know of any veggies that help make things move rather than a laxative pill?  Prunes work for some, perhaps some raisins?

Hope you get relief soon.
