I was diagnosed with gastroparesis when i was 16 in 2017. since then i’ve started medication. My nausea will not go away, I’m in constant pain, and nothing will help. My doctor wanted to see if i was having issues with my gallbladder, but it was fine. I’m kinda at a loss 😅 I just want to feel better because i just started college.

    Hi! What were you prescribed for nausea. I found phenergan to work best along with ginger lollipops. Have you tried any surgeries?

      I’m on dissolvable Zofran. I’ve been trying to avoid surgery. I only know about the gastric pacemaker. Are there any other ones ?

    If the zofran isn’t helping you or giving you pain or constipation try to switch to phenergan it made such a difference. And yes, there are other minor surgeries that do not have risks are are non-invasive. If you haven’t already, check out Dr. Cline at the Cleveland Clinic. Worth the trip and he and is team literally saved my life. He is a true gastroparesis expert.

      i’ll definitely talk to my Dr about it. I see a gastroparesis doctor at Johns Hopkins so i’m very lucky to have him! And it may be time for surgery 😅 thank you!

    I second phenergan and ginger! I can’t take zofran because I have colonic dysmotility, but phenergan has been really helpful

      My Dr prescribed it for me, but only as a suppository, which i’m against 😅

    I’ve had Gastroparesis for a while now and phenergan has been the best to help me. As well as Gas X the cherry flavor there is something about them that just helps SO much. Also, ginger tea or ginger pops help ease nausea. I can sometimes get a bit of ginger ale the bubbles get gas out but too much it will push you over the edge and make you throw up. When is your worst time of the day? Mine use to be first thing in the morning now it’s 8P-10P hot things seem to help at night where as morning colder. Heating pads are amazing as well! I have 2 big ones one for home one for work. Every single time I eat I put the heating pad on my stomach it seems to helps a little. Watch your greens, gluten, as well as dairy they are the ones that will get you the most. Ultimately, just know sometimes surgery is the only way to help and that’s ok you have done nothing wrong our bodies just can’t take our remedies anymore and need a push. Good luck ❤️

      Also, drink as much as you can. And don’t I know how hard that is!! I have to get IVs fairly often because of all of the throwing up making me dehydrated and that can make you hurt all over when you are so see if that is something your doctor could do for you monthly or weekly even. ❤️

    I do zofran plus half of clonazepam. I also wear the sea bands bracelets.

    I take zofran and wear sea bands! It seems to work for me pretty well but I am considering switching to phenagran because zofran makes you so constipated! I’m working up the courage to ask for a feeding tube or the gastric pacemaker because of how bad my symptoms are getting though

    I struggled with severe gastroparesis and would often be admitted to hospital for TPN. Eventually I had to get a feeding tube that sends food/formula straight to the small intestine bypassing the stomach completely. Best nausea meds I’ve tried are phenergan, zofran, and Benadryl. There is also the option of a gastric pacemaker but that’s typically a last resort. Mestinon is also another medication that can help with dysmotility
