was recently diagnosed with gastroparesis after having episodes of vomiting, nausea, early fullness, and horribly upper abdominal pain.

i will be taking medication soon, but i had some questions about the pain that goes along with gastroparesis. Is it normal to have horrible stomach pain - like the worst pain i've ever felt - if i have gastroparesis? and what can i do for it? pain medications only make it worse

a lot of times i'll take maalox before bed but i hate to because i've started taking maalox every single day and that can't be good to do. But i like to take it because I don't want my stomach to hurt so much anymore!!

has anyone else experienced horrible pain with gastroparesis?
