gastroparesis - left side chest burning
Hello, I am a 45 year old female(120 lbs) diagnosed with Gastroparesis March 2008. I started taking Reglan however, I was allergic to it. I then began taking Domperidone and have had excellent results. I have had GERD since I was 18 and have been taking meds since I was 18, right now taking Zegrid twice a day. I believe my gastric emptying is getting better, I can have been using accupuncture in an effort to get off the Domperidone and get my stomach to start working on its own. Every time I take a few days off the domperidone I have a feeling of fire in the upper most part of the left side of my chest that radiates down my left arm. When I brought this up to the doctors, they did extensive cardiac tests with everything checking out fine. Everytime I take a domperidone "holiday" this heat in my chest starts - it mostly happens at night and I sleep on an incline with extra pillows!!
Has anyone else had this and any suggestions ?
