Gastroparesis and Reglan
My doc first thought it was my gallbladder, due to a slightly inflamed pancreas. Ultrasound and HIDA scan came back normal. My doc was puzzled on why I was nauseous all day without eating and a loss of appetite. On the HIDA scan, the radiologist said the dye went from the gallbladder to the small intestine and came back up into the stomach. My doc says you probably have gastroparesis. It makes some sense, it would explain all of my chest and throat/GERD problems. Had my gastric emptying study yesterday (although it only took an hour, the nurse said that was their standard time) and get results on Monday.
I was giving Reglan, how long does this take to work? If it is the correct diagnosis, why would I get it? I am not diabetic, I dont have thyroid problems, I was in great health and athletic and I am still young. I have had this for about two months, although it went away for about a week and then came back. Is this hope that I can be normal again? I am just so tired and want this to go away. Any responses would be appreciated. Thanks!
