Mar 12, 2012 · Gastroparesis with severe symptoms! in Digestive Health

I’m so sorry for your troubles. It must be awful to have to deal with all the nausea and vomiting, etc. My mom was recently diagnosed with gastroparesis after having a gastric emptying study. They said hers was “moderate” but she’s been having a terrible time with it – throwing up every few days and unable to keep anything down. She’s been in the ER with dehydration several times as well. She has osteoarthritis (along with a number of other medical issues). They put her on Reglan which helps with the vomiting when she can keep it down…It’s been extremely difficult for her. One thing they are looking at is that she takes pain meds for her chronic pain and this may be causing the slow down in her gastric emptying. We are in the middle of all this but just wanted you to know you are not alone and I hope you are able to come to a satisfactory solution – it is a really difficult situation – best of luck!
