Anyone have delayed gastric emptying / gastroparesis?

I have been suffering from delayed gastric emptying for the past few months. I have had this symptom off and on for many years...having a flareup about once or twice a year, which lasted about a day or two. I have always had to sit very still for about 20 minutes after a meal.  If I got up to move around during a meal or immediately after, the pyloric valve locked up and would not let the food through into the small intestine in a timely manner.  It used to resolve itself in a few hours.

This last flareup started after eating some 100% flaxmeal cookies.  I have never eaten flaxseed or flaxmeal...so my first time.  I was really miserable that night and the next few days, with a sense of feeling overly full throughout my GI tract and sever constipation.

Ever since then, I have had the delayed gastric emptying, which has made me feel quite ill on some days and really low energy.  Has anyone found a way to overcome this malady?

Things that have worked for my son: Magnesium and lots of fat like fish oil, ghee, the fats in meat, etc.

narnia….you may need to drink tons of water….the flaxseed can block you up if it is not consumed with plenty of fluids and fat….and eat some fruit...

Fats?  Really?  I have read that fats delay gastric emptying.  How does he ingest the fat?

I have been taking Mg...it has helped somewhat and with the bowel movements, but the valve still closes up a day or two later, even after my chiropractor opens it up by manipulation.

That was over two months ago since eating the flax cookies.  I did drink lots of  water....after the fact.  I ate fruit as well.

I have been having great bowel movements when I take enough Mg every day.  It is that the valves have been locking up.

Sorry, he was dealing with encopresis, not your specific condition. But what we learned with all of that is fats tend to cause more movement, helping with constipation.

Narnia,
I go to an Acupuncturist who showed me that I have liquid that sits in my stomach, delays in going down.   She told me to massage the area downwards.
I also have been dealing with sluggish bowels and use magnesium etc. I can eat flax ground up and that seems to help too. Sorry it doesn't agree with you.
