Have they done a small bowel follow through?
My mother had these same symptoms and discovered she had a bowel obstruction due to scar tissue in her bowels.

Also as your doctor to do a stomach emptying test on you.
Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, Degenerative Disk and Facet Disease, and Allergies

thank you for your quick reply!

Ive not had those things done yet.

the dr.(gi specialist says) he doesnt want to do anymore tests at this time but wants to try me on a medicine called (Levsin) its supposed to relax the bowels. He wants me to try this. Ive hesitated so far. Im not a big medicine person but maybe ill try it.
