I am frustrated right now...bear with me. I recently had an endoscopy where absolutely nothing showed up and, after being to about 3 doctors before this, my new doc decided to diagnos me with delayed gastric emptying and gave me medication for it (reglan). I ate better, consistently and cut out coffee, chocolate and ate very very bland on this medicine and felt better along with the miralax that I took to make me go to the bathroom. My doctor calls and lets me know that I need to come off of the medication because of the possible side effects (ticks, muscle spasm, anxiety, depression) and so I got through finals week at school...only to be loaded with coffee, chocolate and now I do not feel good. Being at home means new food and with my dad's cooking, (oils, butter, fat...spicy) all-in-all very bad for my stomach, I am back to feeling terrible. So now I am stuck with having to go on new medication, possibly another one, but nothing at all is working. Something is wrong and I do not know what it is. I should not have this bad of a problem at 19 years old. I want to do things naturally, but I cannot live without the medication to help empty my stomach. But even trying to empty it does not take away the bloating and discomfort I go through each and every day with little relief unless I starve myself. I am going to try erythromycin (?) an antibiotic to help with stomach emptying and continue the miralax as well and maybe adding in zelnorm. To treat the depression and anxiety I want to get on natural vitamins and minerals to help out. I am at a loss and very frustrated...On a good note. Christmas (for those that celebrate it) is only like 6 days away. How exciting. This year my Mom works on Christmas Day, so we are going to celebrate it on Christmas Eve (Sunday). I am pretty excited. Today I baked 2 batches of cookies. It took me about 4 hours, one was very intricate).
