Does anyone know how well gastroparesis is diagnosed in the UK. Also, does a positive response to Metoclopramide confirm gastroparesis? I'm still in total limboland with neurological symptoms, quite a number of lupus symptoms, coeliac disease (that one has been diagnosed by jejunal biopsy) and have had major problems with nausea and only being able to eat very small meals because of feeling full. This last problem I have had some help from GP who put me on metoclopramide, without saying why (except that it was for nausea). I thought it was just an antinausea drug but when I look further discover that it is used for gastroparesis, and I really do feel that my stomach doesn't empty well unless I take the metoclopramide. So I guess what I am wondering is how likely is it that either the general rheumatologist or neurologist I am due to see in a few months will pick up on either my symptoms or the fact that metoclopr. eases them. I've not had much luck with the general rheumie and the lupus symptoms as none of my blood tests have been conclusive on that, and at the time I saw him (18 months ago) I didn't have too many other symptoms.
