      I know cannabis and it's products are and can be controversial. That being said I have been diagnosed with idiopathic gastroparesis. I was completely against any products of this nature. I was unable to keep any food/liquid down for almost 8 months. My parents actually had me smoke a small amount of weed. To my surprise it got me to keep some food and liquid down. I know you're probably thinking I don't want to get high. Just taking a few puffs is enough so it won't make you high just enough to activate/stimulate that vagus nerve.

      I was given zofran that works wonders! When I couldn’t get that I used to take Dramamine to help with nausea! I’d also recommend going on a low fat and low fiber diet if you haven’t been advised yet. My doctors told me to go on that diet and it seems to have helped a lot!! I’d you have any questions you can DM me!!

      I understand its awful to feel that way. I use Sennosides a natural vegetable laxative and I also went to a physical therapist who specializes in pelvic floor and have found the best relief from just understanding my body better. Squatty potty is a must! Yoga helps, magnesium lotion, Epson salt baths, lots of water. And hot tea. Smooth Move is a great tea but not the best tasting so just drinking something hot can help settle the tummy, relief stress and nausea. I hope you can find some relief soon!
