What can I do when in a gastroparesis flare?

Hello @lily21, I'm sorry to hear of your gastroparesis flare-ups. That sounds uncomfortable.

If you are comfortable sharing more can you share how often these flare-ups occur? Do they follow any pattern? For example, after eating certain foods or large meals, etc. You mention that drinking water is painful. Is pain the main symptom that you have?

I look forward to hearing from you again as you seek some answers. Will you post an update?

Well, I'm back at square one. Mayo will not take me on as a patient. Bummer. Now I need to find another place closer than The University of Iowa Hospital, which is 5 hrs from where I currently live. I live in NW Iowa, I'm far away from everything. I am feeling lost right now. Mayo is the best, and I hoped that would work. I'm not sure why I wasn't accepted.

Teresa,
Can you tell me if when I go to Mayo will I have to stay or come back after my initial appt? I am coming from out of town and I am hoping I do not have to go once and come back.
Thanks
Brandy
