Wow, I can't believe we all have this. I have diabetes also which causes gastroparesis so they say. I am always in pain from my head to my toes. Sever migraines, to my feet feeling like they are on fire. My stomach is on functioning at 25%. Im on a starvation diet practically. Crackers, yougurt, water, no sugars, milk, only water. What the heck..all my joints hurt. I have recently started to have new symptom of extreme onset of tiredness. I can fall asleep standing up. Tinninitus, vertigo, dizziness, nausea, confusion, forgetfulness, ( especially names of my grand babies and my own sons) . Feet, hands hurt badly. Stomach always feels full. We need to demand this investigated by CDC.

Strangely, I have diabetes but really good A1Cs. I started feeling sick in May, and it has progressed from there. The Linzess has decreased the nausea but I can eat very little, an egg in the morning with yogurt, snacks of protein shakes, lunch of soups, a little fish, etc. They took me off my diabetes meds and said I could manage my sugars on my own. I have started having pins and needles in arms and while this improved after a shot of vitamin b12 (of which I was deficient), I am still have some effects. I was on Metforim and did not know that caused vitamin b 12 deficits and now am wondering if this is all a reflection of that. I saw my doc faithfully, took meds, watched what I ate, was active, but suddenly this came on. I can't sleep much though. Acupuncture is what works best, but it is costly. I am having an endoscopy, colonoscopy, and a gastric emptying test coming up. I am also meeting with a neurologist and a cardiologist. Each doctor is so narrow in his/her scope, which makes it hard. I want to go to the Cleveland Clinic if the diagnosis is confirmed, which the GIs here are leaning toward. Has anyone been? It seems like the most comprehensive for this disorder? I can manage any hand/leg pain, but the eating is tough. And if this is a complication of my diabetes, does it make sense to be off the meds? I am angry at myself. I should have done more. All I can do now is work to make it better. I worry about dying. I still have children at home. I am currently still trying to work but I wonder about it…
