      Im realizing ive had mine for the majority of my life and im not quite sure what is causing it but I’ve definitely know what causes it to flare. When i was 15 i went to a bootcamp where there was a lot of intense exercise and stress. I couldnt stop throwing up unprocessed foods and ended up getting Rhabdomyolysis from my body breaking down my muscles. This year i had another flare from trying to do colonoscopy prep. If you have gastroparesis PLEASE be careful with colonoscopy prep! I didnt eat enough before doing it and the overfilling of the liquid in my stomach caused a flare that lasted 3 weeks, put me in the hospital, and caused me to loose 13 lbs.

      They still believe mine is caused by nerve damage. That started bin my spine.now affecting my stomach and heart.

      I developed mine from EDS but it got way worse after an abdominal surgery where I nearly lost my life, they likely clipped my vagus nerve and ever since then things continue to deteriorate 💗

      I developed mine from EDS but I went from moderate to severe really quickly because I was under a lot of stress. I’ve learned that significant stress is a huge trigger for me

      I developed it randomly. I thought it was that I was doing too much exercise and I had an electrolyte imbalance but I was wrong.

      I just kind of developed it myself, no real trigger

        @MorRhioghain were you taking any antibiotics at all during that time frame?
