Are there any other people out there from South Jersey or Philadelphia? I'd love to join an in-person support group, but I can't find any in the area. I have gastroparesis (which causes stomach pain, indigestion, heartburn, queasiness, nausea) as well as IBS (bloating to the point of looking 9 months pregnant, excessive gas, stomach noise, pain, occasional constipation but rarely diarrhea).If I can't find a support group, it would be nice to at least meet with other people in my area. Maybe if we get enough people together we could form our own support group.I'm a 36-year old single woman from Cherry Hill who has had stomach problems all my life. My symptoms got much worse in 1997, when I ended up in the hospital and diagnosed with gastroparesis. It's been off and on since then, but it's made my life unmanageable because I never know when I'm going to feel sick.
