So over the past 2 weeks my gastroparesis suddently got really bad. Constant nausea and along with lack of bowel movements. I have been taking laxatives and those dont even seem to work. I think this disease is more frustrating than the type 1 diabetes Ive had for 25 years. I will take any advice any of you have and would love to hear from others who have gastoparesis. Now its at the point its affecting my life because I dont feel good.
So, just to update this, I went to a new G.I. Dr. who also confirmed from my symptoms it is gastroparesis and put me on three meds 2x a day which is reglan, prilosec, and a rx laxative. I am hesitant about taking meds I have had some side effects from them even after just being on them for a few days such as headaches, slight dizziness, and wierd dreams. I know reglan is the rx with the biggest side effects but im only on 5 mg each dose. Is anyone else on this rx? I must say though I had slight stomach pain once over the past few days but nothing like I was having.
