Pondering my Dilemma

Thursday, September 27, 2012

Just a note or two:

I had the gastroparesis test in radiology yesterday (9/26/12). Not a fun experience when your tummy is raw and you can't sleep.

However, this did allow my brain to wander around and ponder something:

Strangely enough, I'm beginning to believe the pressure is too high on my Cpap and it's agitating my tummy with air bubbles rumbling around all night. Of course, this is my doctors' surgery day, so I can't find out if this is plausible, but the gal who answered the phone went to check with "someone" and they said it could force the air into my tummy.

What do you think of that?

When your tummy has a lot of gas/air in it, the poor thing HURTS! emoticon

Once again my great friends on SparkPeople have been super to me and offered soothing suggestions and words of comfort. I'll keep you posted on my progress (I hope).

    Yes, it is possible. My husband just went on C-pap last year, and they told him the pressure is very important. They set it up higher, and told him to adjust it, slowly as he gets used to it.

My Endo just told me yesterday, if I continue to have problems, that we will schedule a Gastroparesis Test. How bad was it?

    Sounds possible. If I feel that there is too much air in my tummy, I rub my tummy gently to burp myself! emoticon

    I hope they can get on this right away and see if the pressure is too high and adjust it accordingly. Thinking of you!

    I agree with everyone else. What's the harm in checking it out? I know for my parents, their CPAPs are optional. They feel that they sleep better with them, but are able to sleep without them in a pinch. I don't know your circumstances, but are you able to go a night without, just to see if it makes a difference?
