I was told the end of October, beginning of November that I have gastroparesis. The doctors do not have any idea how I got this. I do not have diabetes, IBS or anything else that could cause this. I also have never vomited since I was diagnosed. I have been nauseous and have weight loss. I also have stomach pain daily. The pain can be so bad sometimes that it wakes me up from sleep. The stomach pain I have is cramping in the lower part of my stomach, does anyone else experience this? I'm on 3 different medications for this condition.

Thanks for listening.

I was just diagnosed with Gastroparesis about two weeks ago, I can not hold down solid foods for long. i finally got in to see the gi doctor and he sent me to take a gastric emptying study done and it said that i have a sever case of gastroparesis. he put me on medication but with only having share of cost i could not afford the medication. I also was diagnosed with h-pyloria and a hernia and an ulcer at the top of my small intestines. I have lost so much weight that i feel sick to look at myself. I had asked all the right questions, but got very little answers. i was told by my gi doctor...

When I was 15 I was diagnosed with gastroparesis. Before I was diagnosed, I kept having to see my doctor for stomach pains. She then diagnosed me with irritable bowl syndrome. Even though I was on medicine the pain did not stop, it became worse. I would vomit up to 20 times a day and nobody could tell me what was wrong. I'd spend up to 40 days in the hospital at a time. I got referred to different hospitals and what really got me is when I went to Children's hospital and they completely blew me off saying I had acid reflux. It's really hard to live a normal like of a 14 year old when you...

Hello. I was just diagnosed as having this awful disease. It's funny because i just had my gallbladder taken out almost a week ago. My surgeon said he didn't think the surgery was going to help, because at the time, we didn't know what was causing my pain, nausea, and weakness. I've always had stomach problems. For many years, the doctors were saying I had IBS. Two years ago my doctor did some test and was dumbfounded that it wasn't, but we still didn't know what was wrong. I go months without having bowel movements and then i will have straight diarrhea. I have horrible nausea every night...

Hello, my name is Cathryn. I am 17 years old. I have gastroparesis and have had it for a long time now. My case is very severe and I also have chronic GERD too. Yet, I am not diabetic oor borderline. Gastroparesis has caused many delays and harsh outcomes in my young life. They do not know why I have this, I overall try to be positive about it, although, it is extremely hard. My mom tells me all the time it isn't my fault.. it's true, but hard to face the fact that I will have this forever. I am a senior in high school and it is so hard for me to wake up and go, I go even during my attacks...

About 7 years ago I was so sick, I looked like I was ready to have triplets. I was in terrible pain, was nautious and vomiting. I went to my GI and he started performing all these test. Then one day I was asked to bring two pieces of buttered toast for my next test, they provided the hard boil egg that had some kind of mechanism in it where the tech could take pictures every 15 minutes for two hours and actually see where the egg was moving through my digestive system. Well the egg did not move.
About 3 weeks after that I got very sick I was vomiting all the time, very nautious...
