i've been suffering from this condition for almost 8 years now. i've gone through every test imaginable and have tried so many different medications and nothing ever helps. my gastro doctor finally gave me a word for it yesterday. he wrot "gastroparesis" on a slip of paper and told me to go home and research it. then he told me he couldn't help me anymore and not to bother coming back to his office, that if i really wanted treatment my best bet was to leave the country, which is out of the question for me. i'm 20 years old and am at risk of losing my job over this eventually. it is a constant struggle to get through every day when i am in pain and feel like i'm going to be sick on a constant basis. they've got me down to one solid meal a day at this point and now i dont even have a doctor to help me. i have no idea what to do and i'm feeling so overwhelmed and hopeless at this point. this is interfering with my life and i'm scared that its only going to get worse and noone will ever help me. i really don't know what to do and would appreciate some advice. what are some things i can do to help with being in pain, exhausted, and nauseous all day every day? i just want to live my life and stop being a burden to everyone around me.
