Hi there Peanutt!!
Hmmmm, I've never heard of the B vitamin problem. But I do have an idea... do you have a good health food store near by?? Folks that work at health food places usually know a lot about vitamins and absorption, maybe you need to take it in a different form or need another vitamin or mineral to help with a way to absorb it.
I'd like to welcome you to our fibro-family!! This is an AWESOME place to share with those that care.. and believe me WE DO CARE!!! Everyone here is so sweet and understanding. I've learned so much about fibromyalgia from this group. I've also learned that I'm not crazy or lazy or somekind of weenie. As a matter of fact I've learned to step back and learn to smell the roses (even though they make me sneeze..lol) and that life with fibro isn't as bad as I orginally thought.
We laugh and cry together and we have eachother for support!!
Please be sure to check out Fibro 101 - the second thread on the Forum, there's tons of info and coping tools on there. Keep posting and get to know us, as we will get to know you too. There's nothing too weird to ask or answer. There's no judgment here. Just Friend that are better than family, they care in a non-judgmental way.
Gastroparesis means "paralyzed stomach". Your stomach is a muscle that is supposed to contract when you eat to grind up the food and push it through to the small intestine, usually within a few hours after a meal. In Gastroparesis, that does not happen, and the food just sits in the stomach indefinitely.
Typical symptoms include bloated feeling after meals, feeling full after just a few bites of food, upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting of undigested food, reflux/heartburn, and eventually weight loss and malnutrition.
I wish there was a gastroparesis forum on HealingWell. This fibro forum has been so helpful and I would love to have the same connection with other GP folks.
Hi peanutt and Welcome!
OUCH!! I have never had a disc problem, but have had arthritis in my neck since I can remember-
I have been with the group since last June and they have been my saving grace. The fibro hit me very hard and I could not function except to get on the computer, read, and watch a little TV, so it was here I learned having "support" made a huge difference in my life.
Keep us posted on how your doing and your appointments- this is not going to be easy, but you will get through this!
