Wow – You sound just like me!! Have you had your stomach checked to see if it is emptying properly? Also noticed the ears – I never mentioned that but my ears ring almost constantly – worst if I am having a bad episode. I am going to a University Doctor tomorrow for the GI – gastroparesis. But I still want to find out what the underlying cause might be and hopefully treat that. My job (postmaster) is very stressful and that has been mentioned before. I know it has been said how much stress can play in a person health. Could all come down to that. Since January I have lost 30 pounds – could have stood to loose 20 – but now I am just scared that I will continue to loose. I would love to be normal again also.

its crazy stuff….let me know how it goes with the dr. … ive been doing some research and the vegus nerve keeps popping up… im going to a neurlogist and going to ask him if there is a way to check this out

The doctor wants to change my perscription from Domperidine to raglan. Which I have read has bad side effects but if I can tolerate it should help the stomach. I didn’t have much luck with the Neurlogist but that was before I was diagnoised with the gastroparesis. I had called the office after the diagnoises to see if they would want to see me again for furthur evluation with the new condition and they never even bothered to call me back. So that was very dissappointing. I may try a different one. I asked the gastro-specialist yesterday about Vegus Nerve damage and she said that would usually only happen during surgery or accident – that the nerve wouldn’t be damaged due to virus/autoimmue/etc. she also didn’t see how come I have chest/shoulder pain/dizziness when I am having stomach issues. She didn’t see the connection – so wants to test the mobility of the upper esphagus. Let me know if you have any help with the nuerologist – I still wonder if the RamsayHunt shingles that I had last year had anything to do with this condition – as that seems to play hectic with peoples nerves and pain. But I haven’t found anyone that believes there is a connection there either.

Yes there is a connection, first of all Shingles is an Autoimmune disease, which means you could have one or more. Look up Laprascopic Pyeloromyeotomy as this is what cured me. I see a Dr named Dr A, Hawasli who is very well known and is a wonderful Gastro Doc, Have you had a CT scan of your abdomen yet? This is what you need to have or an MRI. Best wishes to you.

Be careful with reglan after a few months of use I had paralasis in my hands and forehead its hard to decide what to take I’m now on nothing until I’m hospitalizedsome of the drugs I was put on made the rest of my life miserable
