Tue, Feb 4 10:24am · Gastroparesis with severe symptoms! in Digestive Health

I’ve just been diagnosed with gastroparesis after having a gastric emptying test. My case is idiopathic in origin, prior to my diagnosis I was on massive amounts of prescription antacids for 4 months. Has this caused my gastroparesis to get worse. I’m scheduled to see a nutritionist in 2 weeks.I am taking erythromycin 250 mg. before each meal , am excercising, but don’t feel much improvement. Does anyone have any advice for me? Shocked with my diagnosis, signed sleepy tummy

Don’t assume that your diagnosis of gerd is from your hiatal hernis like I did for 4 months. I was on magadoses of prescription antacids and I finally went to a doctor at a large hospital in Philadelphia because I was feeling no better but taking so much medicine. I also have a hiatal hernia. He did a gastric emptying test on me and found that I have gastroparesis, ideology unknown which means there is no apparent reason that I have this disease. I am now on a low residue, low fat diet aned 250 mg of erythromycin before each meal and excercise. I hope to start feeling better each day.

you might have gastroparesis like i do. I was just diagnosed with it . You need to have a gastric emptying test which is not done at a community hospital.I just started on 250 mg. of erythromycin and a low residue low fat diet. I am seeing a nutritionist in 2 weeks. Good luck to you. I was being erroneously treated for gerd for 4 months and very sick.So glad to have a diagnosis.
