| | Anyone else with stomach dysmotility?
Hi, I feel very much alone with what I'm going through so am hoping to come across people who can relate to reassure me I'm not alone and not going mad!
My symptoms are a bloated stomach, I'm bloated from from breast bone down to my belly button. The very centre, between my breast bone and my belly button feels tender to touch if pressed. I am permanently uncomofrtable and feel full constantly, although I know my tummy is empty because it lets me know by rumbling with it's loud noises. I feel a weight in my stomach and a tightness around it as though someone has wrapped a belt around my stomach and just keeps pulling it tighter and tighter, this sometimes makes me feel breathless. I also have constipation as a result of this stomach dysmotility.
I can only eat small amounts because the more I eat, the more full and uncomofrtable I feel and eating also makes me feel sick.
My Dr has suggested a medication I try called Metcclopramide but because I am pregnant have had to wait until I'm in my 13th week when it is safe to take it (this will be from tomorrow, I am desperate to start taking it and praying it helps) I want my life back! Thanks to these symptoms along with pregnancy symptoms I have been written off work for 7 weeks, I am desperate to feel well and physically able to move around, bend over withouth feeling there's a brick in my gut and just get on with work, enjoying life and my pregnancy.
For anyone else with a stomach dysmotility, what medications have you tried that have helped and what changes have you made to your diet that you believe helps? I would be very grateful for any response, thanks in advance.
