I was just wondering if anyone had to do an esophageal motility test for gastroparesis?

      I had to do a swallow test. I’m not sure if it’s the same thing. It was 5 hours long including breaks. Had to eat a radioactive egg so they could watch it go through my body. If this is what you’re getting, I’m happy to go into more detail. Not painful, just long.

        @Maylili yes. The test was long. Reglan has helped. I’m looking into surgical options as I’ve lost 30 pounds since October and I keep losing weight. Good luck to you. I know how Gp can negatively impact work and social life.
