Hi I was recently diagnosed with gastroparesis and laropharyngeal reflux after months of annoying congestion and nausea. I am 29 and have really no other health problems, eat healthy, exercise...just confused how this happened I guess. Does anyone else have any experience with either of these?
And also wondering if one endoscopy is enough to diagnose gastroparesis? I have had no other tests done, they found food in my stomach about 10.5 hrs after my last meal. Is there any other reason my stomach might have emptied slower that day or can that be a random occurrence? I'm just really surprised I have this I suppose. Most of my stomach problems seemed like acid churning, nausea, and sometimes severe pain. They did an ultrasound of my gallbladder and said it was contracted as well but no stones or anything so not doing anything with that.
Any thoughts/advice is appreciated. This chronic congestion and coughing is affecting my daily activities and distracting me from work. Just wondering when LPR symptoms start to resolve?
