Signs and symptoms of gastroparesis are

•    Heartburn

•    Pain in the upper abdomen

•    Nausea

•    Vomiting of undigested food—sometimes several hours after a meal

•    Early feeling of fullness after only a few bites of food

•    Weight loss due to poor absorption of nutrients or low calorie intake

•    Abdominal bloating

•    High and low blood glucose levels

•    Lack of appetite

•    Gastroesophageal reflux

•    Spasms in the stomach area

Eating solid foods, high-fiber foods such as raw fruits and vegetables, fatty foods, or drinks high in fat or carbonation may contribute to these symptoms.

 

The symptoms of gastroparesis may be mild or severe, depending on the person. Symptoms can happen frequently in some people and less often in others. Many people with gastroparesis experience a wide range of symptoms, and sometimes the disorder is difficult for the physician to diagnose.
