Hi. I am new to the site. I was diagnosed with RRMS in 2005 and with gastroparesis a year ago after going back and forth to various doctors. My journey didn't stop at diagnosis since I continued losing an enormous amount of weight until I eventually found the right team of doctors at the University of Miami. Sept. 1st I will be doing the Smartpill test to hopefully pin point the culprit. The hope is that it is treatable. If it is damage due to the MS, it may not be. I lost myself for a while and needed PICC line for tpn feeding because I got too malnourished but I have been able to pretty much maintain my weight without it for a few months now. My advice to everyone is to be your own advocate because you are one of the most important part of your Healthcare team. Take care of your body because it's the only one you've got and you can't trade it in for a newer model, unfortunately. My MS has been pretty much under control since I'm on Tysabri (for 5 years or so).
