      Its been a long time since I’ve been on the forum. I had GBS in 2003. I have some residuals but I’m able to maintain a fairly normal life in regards with work & activities. I recently developed a problem with my stomach. It’s called gastroparesis. That basically means that my stomach empties too slow. Its caused by the vagus nerve not functioning correctly. My GI dr won’t definately say that it was caused by my GBS. I don’t have any other major medical problems. Has anyone else developed this problem after GBS?

      I developed gastroparesis before GBS.
      What symptoms did you have and are you on medication for it?

      It started out with severe stomach pain. Shortly after I developed nausea, back pain, & stomach swelling. I take Prilosec which reduces the stomach pain & the nausea. I tried Reglan but had a bad reaction to it. Im trying to control everything thru diet.
