Adnapac

Y’all, I made a really big mistake. I’ve had gastroparesis for a few years now, and I never really had the chance to drink before… long story short, I wanted to feel normal & I had a few Christmas drinks, I really messed my stomach up. Does anyone have any advice? I’ve gotten it all out of my tummy by now, but I have awful abdominal cramping and nausea that won’t go away despite taking my meds. Currently sipping on water & eating ice

      Sips of a sports drink your antinausea meds and slowly introduce crackers or dry cereal something that will help "soak up" the alcohol. That worked for me, but everyone is different.

      I also find eating carbs or starch helps me 🤷 like a potato. Or even white rice. Just start small because you're more than likely probably going to throw it up. Good luck 🤞

      if you have a phenergan (promethazine) prescription i can often take one of those after drinking, knock out for a few hours and feel better when i wake up lol. anything that sort of calms your system down/makes it feel safe helps too, such as a heating pad on stomach
