Hi,I also have ideopathic gastroparesis with some
intestinal dysmotility.I have also lost weight recently (im 5'10 104 now)and Im deperatly
trying to keep my weight.Its a hard battle.
Just curious, have you tried nutrition drinks?
They may help,just sip them slowly.I also suffer migraines and calf pain?Have you read about
abdominal migrains?I take Miralax for constipation
and it has been helpful,I find if my bowles dont
move then my stomach dosen't move.I also try meditation to help with the stress of chronic illness.I have also found massage/accupressure
to be helpful for me.I hope you are feeling well.
PS: a web sit to look into is:www.dailyfutures.com
: I would like to here from anyone who has this disorder. I have dropped 35 pounds in the last 4-5months.I only weigh 108 and am 5'6" female.I have a variety of other problems such as migraines,joint pains,allergies,severe constipation,fatigue, weakness in lower extremeties,severe pain in left flank mostly after eating or drinking,severe nausea,
: leg muscle pain,left shoulder pain.I have had alot of test and no real diagnosis other than gastroparesis.My drug list consist of zofran,premarin,claritin,lortab elixer,imitrex,and I am alergic to the traditional drugs used for this disorder [reglan and propulsid] Eurythromiacin doesn't help either.I also have freguent upper respiratory infections and urinary tract infections.Looking for any info.Thanks
