I wondered whether I have it. Although I do not vomit, the nausea can be REALLY intense sometimes. :( I've just had a bad few days after Christmas after having too much sugar, it made my digestion go crazy again. Wow, this illness can be so frustrating!
I asked my gastro about
having the gastric emptying scan, he just said that the test isn't that reliable anyway and they treat stomach problems with a lot of the same medications anyway, so my doctor didn't agree to do it.
Right now, I am trying to get my symptoms under control by diet. It can be REALLY hard and restrictive sometimes though. Right now, it's no wheat, not too much sugar, no caffiene, and if I'm having a bad spell of GERD/heartburn, it's limiting acidic stuff as well.
I was tried on domperidon which can be used for gastroparesis but it didn't really do anything for me. I have also heard of Reglan, but that the side effects are horrible! :S So I'm pretty reluctant to give that a try, not sure if it is worth it. Especially if domperidone didn't do anything.
