I have been experiencing lower GI dysmotility for awhile now, and it causes me so much intestinal pain. My GI said that people with connective tissue disorders can experience more intestinal pain than those without, because the intestines over stretch and work ineffectively. Does anyone else experience this?


Fibromyalgia (FM)

Generalized pain

Abdominal Distention

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)

    Yes-- we have gastroparesis on and off and it's really difficult to work with when it flares up

    Yes! Most of us have gastroparesis. Following a gastroparesis-friendly diet has helped me immensely. Also keeping an anti-inflammatory diet has been extremely helpful. When I’m having a bad flare benefiber helps to calm things a bit.
