Hello @mariesgut. Welcome to Connect. I am so sorry to hear about all of your discomfort with gastroparesis. I have had major tummy issues over the last 10 years or so and it can be frustrating when all of your efforts to make it better feel in vain. We have had a lot of discussions in the past surrounding this diagnosis. It might be helpful for you to read some of the threads.

I also wanted to invite a few people to the discussion that have been through similar issues you are currently facing. @ken82, @downtowntiger, @ginnyodie, @thull, @pdilly, @quiteachiver75 and @fourof5zs.

Have you found anything that relieves your symptoms at all?

I read there’s a new drug, maybe in trials, “donperidone”. A medical school near you might be able to help.

The best advice for anyone with digestion issues: go ASAP to a dietician. I had to ask for this as it’s simply Not on a medical doctor’s radar!! Lots and lots of help from dietician. Medicare doesn’t pay for this diagnosis to see dietician so you may have to pay but worth it. If you have other insurance I don’t know the protocol. But if you have other issues, insurance pays for diabetes nutrition guidance and I believe overweight diet counseling.

I also suffer from this, however, the ulcers are my problem now.
