Re: [IP] Re: gastroparesis

I got over the side effect of tiredness very quickly, as I do to most of 
my other meds.  I'm sure it's a YMMV thing.  Gastroparesis is weird in 
that you can be totally normally one minute, then keeling over with 
nausea and up chucking the next.  I know the "standard" test for GP is 
uper GI radiology series, but what my doc did was an upper endoscopy, 
which was much more tolerable, as I was sedated for the entire test.  
Instead of having to swallow liquid barium, they just put you to sleep, 
do their thing (look down in your stomach with a scope through your 
throat) and wake you up.  Far less discomfort than the upper GI.  IMHO
