    I've been diagnosed with GP since 2015. I've found some relief with marijuana and have experimented with other hallucinogens, mainly lsd, and found I have absolutely no pain during the high. I last used lsd 7 days ago and have been experiencing visuals on/off since (increased when smoking). I'm seeking a support group to hear some other experiences and to see if this is a "normal" experience for people with slowed digestive systems. I've used lsd three other times since my diagnosis and haven't had this happen in the days following. However, I did get a serious migraine that dulled my trip and then threw me back in hours later, lasting around 12hrs total, as opposed to my friends with normal digestive systems trips only lasting 6hrs.

    I've been taking lisinopril since November and I'm on a BiPAP. I felt fantastic in April and I went out of town to work middle of May I had severe stomach cramping and severe distention in my abdomen and I don't know if they're mutually exclusive and just two things happening at the same time. The first week of July I found out that I have gastroparesis and each doctor blames the other one for a medication they wrote so I have no idea what is causing it. Everyone blames my pain medication and the pain doctor says lisinopril can cause it. And I guess I wonder can it because my other doctors don't think so so I feel lost.

    I have had severe belly, legs, ankle and feet swelling. I went from sz 12 to barley fitting in 16. I can only wear flip flops and they get tight. My GI has no idea. After many test he now has increased my water pill and call him in a week! He never heard of swelling with GP.

    Hi !
    I'm new to your group, I have Gastroparesis for roughly 11-12 years, idiopathic; allergic to Reglan, so try to control it with Domperidone from Mexico. Last year diagnosed with Asthma from allergies, controlled it with Singular and Albuterol puff inhaler, last week I added Claritin, and I've noticed that my Gastroparesis symptoms have improved. Just wanted to see if anyone else has seen this?

  • HI, I have a concussion with severe gastropareses....

    HI, I have a concussion with severe gastropareses. I can only have liquids right now. I was fine before this happened and now I am sick all the time. I haven't eaten in one month. My family doesn't understand and they keep trying to make me eat food like mashed potatoes. I had crackers and threw them up. I hate when they don't understand why I can't go to family dinners. I tell them it's torture and go home. Then they tell me to get out in the sun more. I can't control these headaches. My neurologist can't see me because he's too backed up and the concussion clinic told me I had to see him. I'm getting depressed. Anyone relate to this? Any suggestions on what I can eat that won't make me sick? Did anyone ever only be able to only have clear liquids? I'm sorry, this is all new to me and I'm getting scared. I've lost 13 lbs already and I'm thin to begin with. People are noticing my weight loss and they think I relapsed back into my anorexia. It pisses me off because I've been in recovery 13 years and damn proud of that. Thank you, Cindy. I just hate that my own family questions this but my physician knows that's not so and I've been with him 30 years.

  • Going on month 8 of zyprexa withdrawal. Can anyon...

    Going on month 8 of zyprexa withdrawal. Can anyone else relate? Im very lost right now! My doctor thinks im lying about my horrific withdrawals. He wont even give me anti-nausea medication, even though i'm nauseated 24/7. I have almost every withdrawal symptom imaginable. I was taking 15-20mg a day for 6 years, and my doctor tapered me off in just 2 weeks. Im so very sick and have been in bed since I stopped taking Zyprexa. I've lost 40+ pounds and had a colonoscopy and GI scope. GI doctor says I have inflamation in GI tract and stomach, IBS, Spastic Colon (which is a kind way of saying my muscles in my stomach cramp 24/7 like I have a charlie horse in my entire abdomen. Also have a very odd situation with my diaphram feeling like its being aggressively pulled into my abdomen. there is actually a noticeably large divit in my diaphram area), and GERD. I'm terrified to eat because it feels like glass shards passing through my tummy and GI tract. It would be nice to talk to others like me, who are suffering and dont know anyone who can relate!!! Feeling very helpless, and had to move out of state so that my family can take care of me, since my doctor has been refusing treatment or referrals to specialists.

  • Is a tummy tuck possible?

    Does anyone know if it's possible to have a tummy tuck with Gastroparesis? I know that you have to be careful with anesthesia... but I'm wondering if the distension would cause problems... Or if the procedure itself would cause more nerve damage.
