Hi Rhiannon, welcome to the family. oh that sounds like a whole mix of different conditions and of course there will be days where you can't cope with the pain, I mean after all you are only human.
Its only natural as with anything in life you'll have your good days and you'll have your bad days or even a mix of feelings from one minute to the next.

The support on here is amazing and as fellow pain sufferers we will understand more than what family and friends who don't have chronic pain will.

Sending positive vibes your way xx

Rhiannon, you're the first person I've come in contact with who has Gastroparesis and Raynaud's as well. I have severe Gastroparesis to the point I may be placed on a tube very soon. No medications work and it's such a painful illness. I'M glad to have someone with something in common. Do you suffer with temperature regulation and severe circulation issues due to Raynaud's?

I am 33, forgot to say that. :) I also have several other issues, you can see in my profile. WAY too much to list.

I've unfortunately gotten to the point I can hardly eat anything. It's gotten really bad the past three months. I went from not using the bathroom but once every three weeks to now vomiting every day for three months... nothing stays in more than 4-6 hours. My teeth are destroyed. Sorry if that's too graphic. :/

Nov 05, 2016 4:40 AM

Im not that bad. I can only go every 3 days and if it is almost coming up to 4 days i start to get a fever . Apples and wheat are things that i had to say goodbye to because they made me has nasty nasty pain for up to a week straight

Nov 05, 2016 4:42 AM

Hang in there Sweetie... I've been with people who have had kidney stones and I've seen firsthand what it did to them. I've never had them so I can't say I know how you feel. I hope there is something they can do to help you with that. Sending well wishes, gentle {{{Hugs}}} and good karma your way. 💕😊
