I have MCTD with gastroparesis. My GP symptoms are extreme nausea and epigastic pain, bloating and heartburn. I am usually able to control it by being careful with my diet. I have been prescribed Reglan but rarely take it because of the bad side effect profile. I began to have a full blown MCTD flare about 10 days ago with bad joint pain, muscle pain, GI symptoms etc. well for the last week the GI symptoms have taken the forefront with terrible nausea and pain from my stomach into my back and around my left side, and in my chest. I've started taking the Reglan again for the past few days and it's doing absolutely nothing. Tried to go back to liquids-- that's not helping either. Can't sleep because of pain and nausea. Living with heating pad around me. Called GI doc today and they got me in for tomorrow. Any fellow GP sufferers out there deal with pain as a GP symptom. Any advice?
