My diagnosis was moderate Gastroparesis about a year or so ago. I don’t suffer the horrible pain so many of you have to deal with so I don’t know if my comments will help anyone or not. (I had no idea that Gastroparesis caused headaches and breathing problems and many of those other symptoms listed on this thread.)
I have the severe stomach pains with diarrhea and vomiting AT THE SAME TIME when it flares up. It usually lasts 1 1/2 to 3 hours. And it usually only happens once or twice a month.
To manage my condition I eat practically no fiber, one dose of miralax a day, two domperidone tablets a day, chew every bite a bajillion times, and eat about 8-10 times a day. Not really meals. More like snacks.
I work full time. I’ve only had to miss work a couple of times since I learned how to manage things.
The silver lining of Gastroparesis for me has been the weight loss of about 35 pounds that resulted in getting me off type 2 diabetes and blood pressure meds! And amazingly my A1c has remained at 5.7 even though I eat so many more carbs and so little fiber now!
God bless all of you who suffer with severe Gastroparesis! I cannot imagine how difficult that must be.
