I know of at least one other gastroparesis sufferer on the fibro boards so i was wondering if maybe anyine could share their experience with both? its hard not having gastroparesis site like this one!! I have such a hard time with my nausea that it has made it impossible for me at times to get to physical therapy on top of being curled into a ball from the nausea surely doesnt help. I cant take reglan as it causes a side effect im Not willing to live with (menstrual issues major!). And all the other antinausea meds just plain dont work. And aside from something ive found on my own that helps which isnt quite legal here yet. The next step is gastric pacemaker. Im hoping its ok to post my frustration about both this lifelong incurable and horribly debiliatating at times. Thanks :)

Finding, I have gastroparesis along with reflux, celiac and IBS, my digestive system is a lemon. I have had surgery for reflux oh yeah I forgot about the diverticulitis. I have had a foot of colon removed due to that.
 
I can and do take reglan. I cut out all dense meats although every once in awhile I have to have a very tender filet mignon. I can eat some ground beef and fish. I do not eat any raw veggies and few fruits. My diet is not the healthiest but between the gastroparesis and celiac I'm very limited on what I can eat. I found giving up the dense meats was the best thing I could have done for the gastroparesis.
 
They do have online diets for gastroparesis if you google it.
 
Good luck, I know what it is like to be nausous so much.
 
luv and hugs

Thanks so much for replying. And oy im sorry you have been thru and go thru so much. You are an inspiritation! Only other prob i have with my tummy is horrible lactose intolerance. Blegh! And i LOVE dairy. I cant even totally tolerate soy milk or lactose free. Oh i need to buy and try those pills i cant even have a smoothie from anywhere else. I found also that staying away from meats help or if i reaaally chew up my food before swallowing. But my nausea is quite severe somedays where i will actually be physically sick. My dr has mentioned the gastric pacemaker a couple times and at this point i havent ruled it out. Thanks agaian gentle hugs
