Hi all. I was diagnosed with gastroparesis a year and a half ago. Lately I have noticed that I have had a recurring problem with pain in my stomach in the mornings. I drink 2 cups of coffee and the pain comes on about a hour later, or around the time of the 2nd cup. I cannot tell if this is a knot in my belly from gastroparesis or if it is something in my digestive tract that is causing this knot. I am not hungry when I have this discomfort either. I am also belching a lot in the mornings. It's not attractive or comfortable. Is all of this related to the same issue?
I am prescribed both Reglan and Amitiza (which I rarely take). I take my Reglan at bedtime and with my AM meds. I know I should take it 30 minutes before meals, but I just can't seem to get into that habit. Bad, I know.
I'm no longer vomitting, but I sure don't feel well.
What do you think? Is all of this gastroparesis related or is it something else?
