I'm literally at my wits end with all of this. I've been diagnosed with gastroparesis but because I am also diagnosed with anorexia, the gastro team are leaving my "treatment" down to the eating disorder team, whom are useless.
I'm seeing my cpn next week and I'm going to beg to see the nutritionist. The lack of help due to lack of funding is ridiculous.
I have a hiatus hernia aswell as reactive gastritis and the gastroparesis has been horrendous the past few months and I was only diagnosed in hospital a month or two ago, although it feels like a lifetime ago.
I've been told to just eat and hope that my body will digest food. The thing is, its not. Each day that goes by its getting worse. I can't take anti emetics as I get severe tardive dyskinesia and dystonia.
I'm unable to drink any fluids but full sugar coke, although some days that doesn't stay down. My weight has dropped 5 kilos in the past couple of months. I'm on medication including ranitadine and lansoprazole and its so hard to keep them down
I've tried just eating crackers and bread. I've tried the gastroparesis diet but nothing works. Im so dehydrated and my mood is getting worse. I genuinely need help and I don't know what to do anymore. I've been told if I can't keep fluids down then to go to a&e to be rehydrated via iv but that's all they can do.
:'( I really really need help. This is horrible. Thankyou for reading xx
