Gastroparesis can greatly impact your quality of life. Symptoms include:
- Vomiting – Regular vomiting after meals, including vomiting undigested food, may be a sign of gastroparesis.
- Nausea – Eating or drinking may make individuals with gastroparesis feel nauseated.
- Feeling full after a few bites – The inability to move food through the stomach and digestive tract can make you feel full quickly.
- Acid reflux – Undigested food can push stomach acid into the esophagus, creating heartburn and discomfort.
- Abdominal pain and bloating – Food and liquid slowly moving through the digestive tract can cause pain and bloating.
- Weight loss – Unexplained and unplanned weight loss often stems from the inability to eat regularly.
