Re: Anyone with both GERD and Gastroparesis?

I have had GERD for year. I began having breakthrough reflux even after taking Nexium. Dr. did upper endoscopy on Friday. I still had food in my stomach, he told me I had gastroparesis. He said Reglan was bad; had bad side effects; lawyers all over then not to prescribe. One drug was good & safe, but not available in US. My instructions are to take nexium once a day (he was bumping me up to twice), eat 5 or 6 smaller meals, take Ginger extract & low fat diet.

What I don't know, is if I have always had it or this is something new. I have had upper endoscopies before, but they were ok.

I don't have diabetes.
