    So pleased for you @hedgehog. It must be such a relief to have found what seemed to be triggering it. I hope it stays away.

    @Trish Thank you! It is a huge relief! I hope my findings were correct, so it's something I can control :)

    For those still with gastroparesis, I forgot to say that one thing that helped me a little over the months was having the juice from a slice of lemon. I don't know why that is or if it'll help others.

    Don't read this if you're easily disgusted.

    A few years ago I had symptoms suggesting I might have gastroparesis, while also having diarrhoea. It turned out I had a large polyp in my colon that caused gastroparesis-type symptoms. The diarrhoea was caused by the "overflow" of faeces around the polyp. "Overflow diarrhoea" is quite a common problem and info can be found on the web quite easily..

    Once the polyp was found and removed the symptoms I had been suffering with gradually went away (it took a few weeks). I don't have very severe problems with diarrhoea or constipation any more. Any issue that does arise is dealt with by using over-the-counter remedies, or by just ignoring it until it goes away.
