Anybody here suffering from this illness? Anybody who knows someone suffering from it? Is there a doctor who could talk about it? My mom was diagnosed with this (severe was added to it AND it took almost ONE YEAR to get that result after MANY tests with some that were taken MORE THAN ONCE and it was given by a doctor who it took a few months to think that not being able to eat is NOT NORMAL) Monday. She was prescribed motilium, is anyone here taking this medication or know someone who is taking it? She has not filled it yet but she will tomorrow. Also does anyone has had a surgery for that illness or know someone with that disease that has had a surgery for it? She does not totally trust that that this is what is wrong with her since it took a long time with many tests and it was given by a doctor who seems to not care and not really know how to do her job. She has a big lump that goes to where the belly button is and all of this is hard. Also with her belly button there is a discharge and it stinks. She always have stomach pain, belly pain, cramps and is constipated. She can only eat a small portion of food at a time (sometimes only once a day at breakfast...most of the times its toats or jello that she can eat). She describes it as when she eats it gets stuck and stays there. Any help will be very much appreciated!

Was this related to diabetes? Diabetics can get gastroparesis as a result of the spreading neuropathy.

I am so sorry to hear she is suffering from this.

She was told that she could get diabetics one of these days because of this yes. My mom says thanks for the nice words!

My mom had to stop taking that medication. It made her problems worst, she has now new ones (her stomach now is swollen all the time and her belly button area too is also swollened) and she also is allergic to it (she has lots of zits inside her mouth and her throat is swollened). She did called the drugstore this morning and spoke with the pharmacist and she said to stop taking it. She called her doctor's office to tell them (she is AGAIN on vacation so she left a message...even if she gets it she wont care like usual).
