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?
Coffee in itself will make me nauseous sometimes or have stomach pain. Maybe try eating something with the coffee? Also, mornings are always the worst for me and the GP symptoms get better as the day cont.
