Sweetiebelle

I feel extremely full even after eating very little. However, I don't throw up. I have to spend a lot of time laying down and recovering after a meal. Could this be a sign of gastroparesis?

      Update: My stomach was full of food at my endoscopy, and the doctor said I almost certainly have gastroparesis.

      Yes! I don't vomit often, but I do have extreme nausea. My GI has tried several medications and they do work for most people.

      Hi there! This could be gastroparesis, I have it and I don’t tend to throw up much quantity wise if at all. I would talk with your doctor about your symptoms and seeing if you can get a stomach emptying study done, that way you know for sure it is just gastroparesis and not something else. I know it is a long journey but it will be worth it in the end. Hugs 🩵

        @Cwabs Thanks! I got a colonoscopy and everything looked fine. I'm scheduled for an endoscopy and I'm unsure whether they'll find anything. I'm hoping for an emptying test next. My wallet is weeping.

Yes, feeling extremely full after eating very little and needing to lay down and recover after a meal can be signs of gastroparesis. Other symptoms may include bloating, nausea, and sometimes vomiting. However, the range of symptoms can vary among individuals.
