Has anyone got motility issues? I’ve had bowel problems for years and years. It’s getting worse. I had an ultrasound for my gallbladder that accidentally found a full stomach after 16 hours fasting. This raised alarm bells. I had a slow transit test that showed definite slow transit. I have started having food come back up my gullet after eating, feeling very sick after I eat & severe pain in my stomach after eating. I get pain all the time in other places in the bowel. I go to the loo frequently, I get a lot of mucus out from behind and struggle with certain foods. I’ve also started leaking mucus and other delights without realising . I’ve had a stomach emptying test as my stomach symptoms match gastroparesis. I’m not diabetic but very thin and can’t gain weight. The stomach emptying was shockingly normal. They then did a colonoscopy/endoscopy which was fine but they didn’t do a biopsy for schloderma as was requested. Just for crohns and colitis which I don’t have. My symptoms are getting worse and I’m at a loss. The Gastro says it’s just IBs. I argued there’s evident slow transit issues so they diagnosed slow transit constipation which makes no sense to me as I go to the loo 3 plus times a day?? Has anyone had similar symptoms and know what it is? Has anyone had a normal stomach emptying but still have gastroparesis?
The other mystery is I have ‘gunk’ in my throat CONSTANTLY. No Gp or ENT or Gastro can figure out why. For years they said its a post nasal drip but ENT say it isn’t and could be stomach contents. It does burn sometimes. It also wraps itself around my uvula so I think or feel like I’m choking when I’m not?? Anyone had this either?
