Do gastroparesis symptoms slowly creep up on everyone?
I am not diabetic nor do I have blood sugar problems.
This Spring (2023) I started getting full after only a few bites. After awhile, constipation became an issue followed by waking up so hungry I wanted to throw up. 6 weeks ago the nausea and vomiting began, particularly after eating. On bad days it’s 4-5 vomiting episodes and after every “meal” I go through a crazy routine of trying to keep food down. I’ve lost 20 lbs in 6 weeks & ended up in the ER.
Is the slow buildup of symptoms typical of gastroparesis? I’m a healthy 57 year old woman with chronic MDD which is currently under control so I have no idea how I developed gastroparesis. I’ve discovered that bananas & Fresca are life savers!
Any input &/or advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
