Avatar f tn I was just diagnosed last month with Gastroparesis and Gerd. I take Metoclopramide 10 mg for it and find it does nothing to help me. My Doctor says if Relgan doesn't work for you what will? I am in need of better advise what to do with this I have taken so many tests in the last two months for it. Ultrasound, Upper GI, EGD, Gastric Emptyting test for stomach for solid foods, and a Cat scan. Plus blood work.

I basically live my life nauseated, vomitting, and in pain. Gastroparesis is usually associated with people who have diabeties, but mine is idiopathic (the theory is it MAY have been caused by my first pregnancy with my son).
Avatar n tn She is diabetic and has been suffering with gastroparesis for many years. She receives tube feedings as able per J-tube and eats when able but has bile emesis after every meal. She also complains of lower abd cramping during tube feedings. She is a very brittle diabetic. Isn't there some kind of surgery that could help alleviate this problem-even if it means TPN for the rest of her life? Thank you!
Avatar n tn These drugs should be prescribed by a physician. Finally, in patients with diabetic gastroparesis, it is important for to keep the glucose (sugar) level under good control since that has also been shown to improve this condition. Recent research has focused on trying to improve gastric emptying by resetting the gastric pacemaker. It is possible to measure the electrical rhythm of the stomach with a technology called electrogastrography.
Avatar f tn Because of the complexity of the disorder it's hard to give you advice based on this info. Are you diabetic, or do you have any other condition which may be responsible? What was your emptying time? That will go a very long way in determining treatment. To answer your q's: 1) Will you continue to lose weight? Possibly, depending on your current weight, what you're eating, what you're able to eat, etc.
Avatar n tn I am a caregiver to a 43 year old caucasian male. He is a Type I Diabetic with ESRD and hemodialysis. Previous Kidney transplant that went into failure 1 yr ago.

Avatar n tn My doctor recently prescribed Metoclopramide for gastritis which has been giving me such extreme misery the last four months. I wondered if anyone had taken it for this purpose, and does it work? Any replies would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn This is not working either. No difference. Prilosec does not work either. He has said I have diabetic gastroparesis. The only symptoms that I have is severe burning in my stomach, and a feeling to have a bowel movement quite frequently. I am almost afraid to leave the house. The burning in my stomach is constant with no relief. Can anyone tell me if this is the best it gets. No medication is working at all. No relief. Is there anything that can be done?
Avatar n tn I am 22 years old suffering from idiopathic gastroparesis for six years. I took propulsid for the gastroparesis for a year and then my doctor increased my dose because I was getting worse. After the dosage increase, I went into cardiac arrest three times once where I had no heartbeat or breathing for five minutes and was unconscious for ten. I am so fortunate to have survived that without permanent damage. I had no previous history of cardiac problems.
Avatar f tn It's four years later and I'm suddenly posting which is insane, I know, but I realize that I never posted here when I figured out what was wrong with me; thank you, Bibber113 for reminding me. I had (have?) gastroparesis. Basically what this means is that, for some unknown reason, my stomach muscles are partially paralyzed and I digest food at half the rate that normal people do.
Avatar n tn azithromycin, beta blockers [10], bethanecol, cisapride, clarithromycin, diazepam, domperidone, erythromycin, metoclopramide, naloxone (used to stimulate gastric emptying in critically ill individuals treated with opioids) [11,69], prostaglandine E2 [11], pyridostigmine (used in treatment of diabetic gastroparesis) [11,66]. H2 antagonists ranitidine, famotidine and nizatidine may or may not stimulate gastric emptying [70,71,72,73,74,167].
Avatar n tn However, I have no health insurance. Based on what I've studied and have been told, the most likely culprits are gastroparesis (very slow emptying of the stomach) OR gall bladder disease. It is true that when your stomach retains its food load an excessively long time, the contents can somewhat "ferment." I also have been told that bile typically tastes sulfuric. So, I am no closer to reaching a conclusion.
Avatar n tn All of his other symptoms are gone, still working on the nausea. He was also diagnosed with gastroparesis(due to the dysautonomia). Perhaps, research on the dysautonomia to see if it fits anyone elses symptoms.
