After almost a decade of physical, mental & emotional distress, I was recently diagnosed with gastroparesis & was prescribed Reglan, the ONLY drug available in the U.S. for this condition. The stomach emptying study revealed markedly abnormal results indicating that my gut was MORE than partially paralyzed. I've been unable to digest food appropriately, if at all. I recently lost a considerable amount of weight & had severe cognitive issues. My physician informed me that I am & apparently have been malnourished for quite some time. For approx the last 5 yrs, I had no appetite, & I literally ate to stay alive. My husband left me in 2012, but my symptoms began around 2004. Consequently, I discovered he'd had been involved in numerous affairs. After that discovery, I had off handily suspected sone type of poisoning from time to time & actually mentioned this to my mom & two of my friends. My question is: Can antifreeze or other intentional poisonings cause gastroparesis?
