Re: Anyone with both GERD and Gastroparesis?

Hi, ckpsyc. I have had GERD and gastritis for a while, and I've just recently been diagnosed with gastroparesis. I currently see a fancy GI at a teaching hospital, and he thinks that the GP caused the other two conditions: Food doesn't leave my stomach, so instead it sits around, causes irritation to the stomach lining and causes reflux.

I am taking Domperidone, imported. It helps a LOT and it's so much less toxic than Reglan. I was on PPIs for a long time, they helped but they never seemed to help MUCH, probably because the motility issues weren't being addressed.

Let me know if you want to chat.

Jane.
