Hi my name is Jennifer and I have gastroporesis. And this whole month I've been throwing up and haven't been able to eat every day I'm in pain I was just wondering if anybody knew anything they could do to ease the symptoms of this disease.

      Has anyone noticed that Prednisone helps with their gastroparesis? Also, does anyone's gastroparesis come and go? Mine can resolve for a year and then return out of the blue..m

      Definitely see a GI doctor, and yes zofran is a lifesaver, but my GI said the Botox into the pyloric area doesn't work and isn't recommended for everyone. I tried the usual reglan but had issues. I was then told the other medication technically isn't FDA approved in to get US, but they use it but is likely have the same reaction. Therefore I am unfortunately unmedicated except for nausea meds. And that's a miserable experience. I'm supposed to mainly do liquid meals due to this. I honestly haven't sick to that, which causes so many additional issues and ongoing pain and throwing up. I need to be more serious about eating properly to help manage symptoms which I'm told will make a big difference. So is recommend seeing a Gastro intestinal doctor and taking over options and following the gastroparesis diet.

          @jencecil I was given a paper by my doctor. It basically says don't eat things high in fiber because they're harder and take longer to digest. Cut back on meat, especially red meats because they're very hard to digest and are very fiberous. Also avoid fruit and veggies that have fiberous parts like celery. When having a bad flare I was told liquids, or puree food like apple sauce, mashed potatoes, smashed green beans would be best to eat.
