DUMPING Syndrome???

Anyone know much about this? Cuz this sounds more like me than most of the gallbladder attacks that I've read...except that I've never had gastric bypass surgery which I guess triggers it in most people....or any other surgery. And I don't think I have that other rare disease that triggers it because of tumors. What else could cause it? My doc says it's heartburn but that's not it and she ticked me off by blowing me off. My mom, a nurse, thought gallbladder initially but after I told her all my symptoms she said it sounded more like Dumping Sydrome. I thought yeah no kidding since it's always accompanied by explosive diarrhea which actually brings relief, but it's a real thing. And can someone tell me if a gallbladder attack can also include severe sweating which makes my face beat red, an allover stomach pain not just isolated to either side, more central, and firewater diarrhea? All of which happens either before I even finish a meal, or immediately after. And after it all comes back out, I'm 100%, just much lighter. All within an hour.

Re: DUMPING Syndrome???

Patients with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome may also have dumping syndrome. (Zollinger-Ellison syndrome is a rare disorder involving extreme peptic ulcer disease and gastrin-secreting tumors in the pancreas.)
Doctors diagnose dumping syndrome through blood tests. Treatment includes changes in eating habits and medication. People who have dumping syndrome need to eat several small meals a day that are low in carbohydrates and should drink liquids between meals, not with them. People with severe cases take medicine to slow their digestion.

Re: DUMPING Syndrome???

Did you get a diagnosis for your disorder? I also have the same my dr did the test for Zollinger's (wasn't that). But I do have every symptom of the "Dumping Syndrome" Do you develop hives along with the itching? Over time, my symptoms have worsened, so I got really dilegent about following the rules for the Dumping Syndrome. Adding fiber has helped a lot also.
