Hi, I dont have your problem but I do have AR/GERD and you need to get a good eating plan. Cut down on raw foods and carbonated drinks and eat little and often.
Domperidone is good it helps move your food along so it doesn't sit in one place undigested for too long. Also I found it helpful for Nausea. You could also try Root Ginger added to boiled water or Ginger tea for Nausea. Eat small meals and often rather than large meals at a sitting. Look up Diet for Gastroparesis. Good Luck, Solofelix.
I take domperidone four times a day and find that it helps the nausea for the most part. I also take Zofran for breakthrough nausea. It is something I have learned that I have to live with so I take my meds religiously and let my doctor know when it is getting really bad - only because when it is bad I have a hard time controlling my blood sugars and he needs to know that in case I end up in emerg.
Everyone would think this is bad advice, but I discovered it by accident. I suffered with gastroparesis for about 4 years, not knowing exactly what was wrong. I went to all kinds of doctors...Shands, Emory, chinese medicine doctors, etc. I tried the antibiotics and almost every natural cure there was. My family needed an extra paycheck and I had no choice but to go back to work and had to take a job 35 miles away from home. I worried that I couldn't handle it because of my stomach. I started drinking coffee to stay awake and a week after I started the job, my stomach problems stopped and I've been pretty much symptom-free for 2 years now. One month ago, I decided to stop drinking coffee because the creamer was packing on the pounds. I then became sick again. As soon as I started the coffee again, I was back to normal. I looked up coffee and gastroparesis online and sure enough, it said that caffeine speeds up gastric emptying. Some may say this is bad advice, but it surely has helped me!
Hey, 320girl, glad you are doing better. My doctor told me the same thing about caffeine. I can't have coffee, my stomach lining is too tender, but I usually eat a little dark chocolate after dinner, and it really seems to help the digestion and let me eat larger dinners.
