I'm so tired of this condition. Everything I attempt to eat upsets my stomach and makes me nauseous. I take Domperidone but doesn't seem to be doing anything to help. I just seem to be gaining more and more weight because when I do eat, it just stays in my stomach. Doesn't get released, if you know what I mean. I hate food....but if I don't eat I feel worse. Thanks for letting me vent

      The only thing that actually helped me is when I went to a registered dietitian in 2013 who was not familiar with gastroparesis. But, she went and educated herself about this condition and really helped me set up a food plan that would help me. I knew most of it but was able to help me change up the routine. Small meals 3-5 meals each day. It keeps the metabolism higher and then I actually started to lose weight finally and not feel sick. Eating at home and making all the meals (most of the time) really works. Eating in restaurants are really bad For our condition. I can go on and on about it since I’ve had it for the last 25 years. If anyone wants more info or has questions please feel free to contact me. It is lonely when most people don’t understand we can’t eat what normal people eat everyday. I’m tired explaining to them. So happy I just found this group.

      I feel the same way. I’m not on any medications other than zofran to control my nausea and it’s awful. I’m in a constant flare up 90% of the time and I eat less than a toddler does 😓 some days I wish I could just forget about food all together

        @BumbleBees OMG I get it! I also have interstitial cystitis and if I eat or drink the wrong thing, I'm done for...... I hate being this unhealthy and it's not from anything I actually did...... Autoimmune illnesses SUCK

      I know EXACTLY how you feel. I am sick to my stomach pretty much ALL THE TIME. I won't eat much for days then my hub forces me to eat something. I've gained so much weight due to gastroparesis. I even weaned myself off of my antidepressant bc I thought I'd lose some weight. Nope! I also have cyclic vomiting disorder. Hmmm. 🤔.
