Symptoms include fever, chills, back pain, nausea, vomiting, and headache. Treatment is aimed at relieving symptoms. Stomach flu (gastroenteritis) is a term referred used to describe a variety of gastrointestinal problems.
Techniques that can be helpful in managing pain include those used by psychologists, for example cognitive behavioural therapy. Pain relief in the form of applying a hot pack to the abdomen for short periods may be helpful.
She has a lot of stomach pain after eating meat. I’m scared for her to try the baking soda test. She vomits frequently. Acid reducers make her symptoms worse but the doctors say it’s necessary to protect her esophagus. It’s very frustrating not knowing which way to go.
Showed no candida (although I find it strange that my tinea vercicolor improved initially after VSL. But it’s back now). Now 3 months later I have B12 and D3 at normal levels after supplements.
Some patients are only able to be controlled on a liquid diet to allow for easier gastric emptying. Gastroparesis patients, particularly those with diabetic gastroparesis, tend to do better with better glycemic control and avoidance of high fat foods. There are multiple ways in which to diagnose patients with gastroparesis who demonstrate the classic symptoms. The most common diagnostic test is gastric emptying scintography in which a patient consumes a radiotracer and gastric contents fail to pass into the small intestine within 4 hours of ingestion. If radiologic gastric emptying studies are not available, endoscopic evaluation may be considered with manometry or capsule endoscopy to further assess gastric motility and transit.

If the body doesn’t receive necessary nutrients, you can become vitamin or mineral deficient. Stomach acid is also responsible for killing harmful bacteria from foods and neutralizing enzymes. Low gastric acid can leave the body vulnerable to a number of diseases and health complications. Severe cases of gastroparesis can also be treated by injecting botulinum toxin (Botox). The injection is given into the valve between the stomach and the intestine to keep it relaxed and open for longer period of time so food can pass through.
After getting fedup with every thing i gave up taking them and after few weeks i could feel i was getting better , but this feeling lasted only 20 days and here i am again with the same probelm.

Im sorry but im in a desperate need for seeking some answers, i reeally cant take this feeling any more. Thank you.
Nevertheless, this can cause problems with blood sugar control. Consuming certain substances, such as tricyclic antidepressants, caffeine, fat, and alcohol, can further slow stomach-emptying and other digestive processes.
After 3 days the bloating after meals was much better. The reflux and breathing is much better also.
