Help From Strong Coffee!

I wanted to share my miracle story. I am 36 and suffered with gastroparesis for about 4 years before finally getting diagnosed at Shands Hospital in FL. Once I was diagnosed, there was no relief. I started a new job an hour from home (worried that I wouldn't be able to keep the job, but knowing that my family needed the money). I started drinking strong coffee to keep me awake since I was awake with nausea most of the night. Miraculously my stomach started feeling better and I wasn't sure why. I never knew it was the coffee. Two years later, I decided to stop drinking coffee because I thought the creamer was making me gain weight. Once I stopped drinking the coffee, I became sick again. I finally realized it was the coffee that had been helping and started drinking coffee again. I researched it online and found that caffeine speeds gastric motility. I'm not saying that it will help everyone, but it's certainly worth a shot!
