I have Gastroparesis - Severe pain, unable to eat/drink. Do I need to go to A&E?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, I am new to this. I have recently been diagnosed with Gastroparesis, but I have had this for around 2 years. Believed to have been caused by earlier eating disorders in my life which I have overcome. The past couple of days I have been in severe pain, unable to eat/drink and unable to function. I have spent my days in bed is copious amounts of pain and nothings working. This is the worst the pain has ever been, I don't even have an appetite. I am feeling extremely light headed, weak and dizzy. I can't take my medication because I feel so nauseous. Do you think I need to go to A&E at this point? I don't know what to do? My gastroenterologist appointment is not until March. Does anyone have any experience with this and could provide some advice? I'm just desperate and I don't know where to go at this point.
