Exclamation Bathroom urgency, Gastroparesis, GERD and possible IBS

About a month a month and a half ago I started feeling really sick. I was nauseous all the time, bloating, gasy and had bouts of diarrhea. I saw a gi specialist and had and EGD done. He explained to me that I have GERD and gastroparesis and that I have a few errosions in my stomach, but they were nothing to worry about.
He prescribed me 10 mg of Reglan 2-4 times a day, 20mg of Achiphex twice a day and gave me an hycosomine which is an antispasmodic 2 times a day. I only take the antispasmodic once in a while because I do not want to take so many medications. So far nothing is working. Everyday I feel sick. I get dry heaves occassionally, then I get serious, severe cramping in my lower abs and groin that is followed by diarrhea at least twice. Then I begin to feel better. I have begun drinking camomille tea and taking one culturelle pill a day, but nothing yet. (Just started the tea and culturelle today). I cannot work because I feel worse at work and it is usually due to the urgency of a bowel movement, but sometimes nothing happens or sometimes is pure diarrhea. I am getting a second opinion from another doctor next week and I am hoping something comes of it all. I do not have diabetes, I am about 80 pounds overweight, but i have lost 20 pounds within the last two weeks or less. I find I can only eat once or twice a day and stave off the nausea sometimes. I just do not know how I am going to continue living like this.

Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas? I want to think it is something else that is forcing me to run to the bathroom all the time even if nothing happens. I am just scared.
