    Default I think I have an eating disorder!

    This is getting very frustrating. First the lack of appetite and now this.
    Right now pretty much nothing sounds good to eat, ever. On the plus side I
    do seem to have an appetite sometimes. Sometimes an incredible appetite.
    It's as though I can hear my insides squeaking, I feel so empty.

    I am having a horrible time coming up with things to eat for meals and
    snacks. Breakfast is not such a problem. I just eat toast then and I tend
    to eat it as quickly as possible just to get it over with. If I need a
    snack between then and dinner (and sometimes I do) then I eat a fruit snack.
    That's over with in 3 bites and they do taste good to me so really not a
    problem. But soon I'll be out and will have to switch over to Craisins.
    Angela was sneaking the fruit snacks so I can't buy them any more.

    The problem is with dinner and my bed time snack. No matter what I fix to
    eat or order in a restaurant, I just don't want it once I have it. I have
    even taken to dishing up smaller portions when at home because I know I
    won't be able to eat it all. I take two bites and then this weird sensation
    comes over me. I feel like I want to cry. I don't actually cry. I just
    get this thought in my mind that I want to cry. And then I feel like I just
    want to go to bed and sleep and forget about food. I don't really want to
    sleep and most of the time when I get this thought I am not even sleepy or
    tired.

    The other night this happened in a restaurant. I had a hamburger patty with
    lettuce, tomato and onion. This would never be my first choice for a meal
    and I don't really like this so much but it is one of the few things I can
    eat in a restaurant. As in, I am not intolerant to these foods and I can
    digest them. The weird thing is that the food tasted really good to me. I
    even commented on how good it was because I didn't think I was going to like
    it. But after the two bites I just didn't want to eat any more. I still
    felt hungry. But I didn't want to eat it. I had to force myself. And then
    I had the French fries which I knew that I had to eat because my BG was a
    little on the low side. I really had to force myself to eat those and I
    must say that they did taste weird to me. They had some sort of seasoning
    on them.

    Even foods that I really like, like black bean soup, baked beans, refried
    beans, etc. are now difficult for me to eat beyond the second bite.

    This all seemed to start up when I stopped taking the Metoclopramide. I
    know it speeds up digestion and I also know that it does something to the
    dopamine in the body. It was originally designed to treat depression (I
    think) but it failed miserably at that. They did notice that it sped up
    digestion so it is used for that and also for migraines. Although oddly the
    information I read about it said it could also cause migraines.

    I did read that the withdrawals from this med can be brutal but nobody
    really spelled out what would/could happen when you withdraw from it.

    Right now I just wish that I never had to eat again. If I could get all of
    my nutrition in a pill, I would be very happy. And although I do take a lot
    of supplements, I know I am not getting enough calories from them. Plus
    they wouldn't keep my BG up and unlike many diabetics if I don't eat enough
    carbs, I go hypo.

    Logically, my mind is telling me that this is sort of like depression and
    yet... It is very fleeting. I seem to get these feelings only when I have
    to eat. I had similar feelings when I was pregnant but then I did burst
    into tears when faced with a meal mainly because of the amount of food I was
    supposed to eat when pregnant. There was just no way I could ever eat that
    much! Breakfast was fine because that was the smallest meal of the day.
    But lunch was bad and dinner was sheer torture. Plus I was supposed to eat
    snacks that I didn't want.

    When I was pregnant I would spent a good two hours crying while trying to
    eat the food. Now I do not cry. I just have thoughts that I should. I
    almost always wind up not being able to eat all of the food even with
    reduced portions. And then once I get rid of the remaining food, I feel
    fine. Of course eating less food is causing problems with a few hypos. I
    have been solving this by eating gummy bears which I don't particularly like
    but neither do I dislike them.

    When I am not eating a meal or snack, I feel fine. I do not feel like I am
    depressed at all. But when it's time to eat, it isn't pretty.

    METOCLOPRAMIDE

    Reglan is one brand of Metoclopramide.

    Summary of what I found:
    Eating disorders not mentioned.
    Taking too much of it or for too long is likely to cause muscle control disorders, such as tardive dyskinesia.
    Stopping use of it can cause dizziness, nervousness, and headaches if the dose is not reduced gradually.

    Julie, I have recently got a Vitamix. I was having the problem of always
    being hungry & eating the wrong things & too much. This has really helped
    me! I have fruits & vegetables blended up into a green smoothie. I have
    one or two almost every day. Me b/g's are coming down, I don't feel bloated
    all the time. My vision has improved too. I am lovin' it!! If I don't
    have time to cook, I make & smoothie & take it along with me.

    Yikes! That is one thing that would never get past my lips. I can not
    stand the texture of a smoothie. Angela loves them. If that is all I had
    to eat I would just starve to death because I could never swallow it. I
    also have a severe dislike for fruit. Especially the type that you would
    put in a smoothie. But I'm glad it works for you.

    This is getting very frustrating. First the lack of appetite and now this.
    Right now pretty much nothing sounds good to eat, ever. On the plus side I
    do seem to have an appetite sometimes. Sometimes an incredible appetite.
    It's as though I can hear my insides squeaking, I feel so empty.

    I am having a horrible time coming up with things to eat for meals and
    snacks. Breakfast is not such a problem. I just eat toast then and I tend
    to eat it as quickly as possible just to get it over with. If I need a
    snack between then and dinner (and sometimes I do) then I eat a fruit snack.
    That's over with in 3 bites and they do taste good to me so really not a
    problem. But soon I'll be out and will have to switch over to Craisins.
    Angela was sneaking the fruit snacks so I can't buy them any more.

    The problem is with dinner and my bed time snack. No matter what I fix to
    eat or order in a restaurant, I just don't want it once I have it. I have
    even taken to dishing up smaller portions when at home because I know I
    won't be able to eat it all. I take two bites and then this weird sensation
    comes over me. I feel like I want to cry. I don't actually cry. I just
    get this thought in my mind that I want to cry. And then I feel like I just
    want to go to bed and sleep and forget about food. I don't really want to
    sleep and most of the time when I get this thought I am not even sleepy or
    tired.

    The other night this happened in a restaurant. I had a hamburger patty with
    lettuce, tomato and onion. This would never be my first choice for a meal
    and I don't really like this so much but it is one of the few things I can
    eat in a restaurant. As in, I am not intolerant to these foods and I can
    digest them. The weird thing is that the food tasted really good to me. I
    even commented on how good it was because I didn't think I was going to like
    it. But after the two bites I just didn't want to eat any more. I still
    felt hungry. But I didn't want to eat it. I had to force myself. And then
    I had the French fries which I knew that I had to eat because my BG was a
    little on the low side. I really had to force myself to eat those and I
    must say that they did taste weird to me. They had some sort of seasoning
    on them.

    Even foods that I really like, like black bean soup, baked beans, refried
    beans, etc. are now difficult for me to eat beyond the second bite.

    This all seemed to start up when I stopped taking the Metoclopramide. I
    know it speeds up digestion and I also know that it does something to the
    dopamine in the body. It was originally designed to treat depression (I
    think) but it failed miserably at that. They did notice that it sped up
    digestion so it is used for that and also for migraines. Although oddly the
    information I read about it said it could also cause migraines.

    I did read that the withdrawals from this med can be brutal but nobody
    really spelled out what would/could happen when you withdraw from it.

    Right now I just wish that I never had to eat again. If I could get all of
    my nutrition in a pill, I would be very happy. And although I do take a lot
    of supplements, I know I am not getting enough calories from them. Plus
    they wouldn't keep my BG up and unlike many diabetics if I don't eat enough
    carbs, I go hypo.

    Logically, my mind is telling me that this is sort of like depression and
    yet... It is very fleeting. I seem to get these feelings only when I have
    to eat. I had similar feelings when I was pregnant but then I did burst
    into tears when faced with a meal mainly because of the amount of food I was
    supposed to eat when pregnant. There was just no way I could ever eat that
    much! Breakfast was fine because that was the smallest meal of the day.
    But lunch was bad and dinner was sheer torture. Plus I was supposed to eat
    snacks that I didn't want.

    When I was pregnant I would spent a good two hours crying while trying to
    eat the food. Now I do not cry. I just have thoughts that I should. I
    almost always wind up not being able to eat all of the food even with
    reduced portions. And then once I get rid of the remaining food, I feel
    fine. Of course eating less food is causing problems with a few hypos. I
    have been solving this by eating gummy bears which I don't particularly like
    but neither do I dislike them.




    When I am not eating a meal or snack, I feel fine. I do not feel like I am
    depressed at all. But when it's time to eat, it isn't pretty.

    This is probably something you really need to discuss with your Dr.
    Obviously something is going on with you and we probably can't help you to
    much. Have you been loosing weight too?

    I had lost some weight then a couple more pounds but I have put those two
    pounds back on. BG was up before bed last night. Down this morning but
    then up over 200 after breakfast. Only down to 191 before dinner.

    I doubt that my Dr. could be of any help. And I don't see him for a few
    months. I am pretty sure that it has to do with stopping the
    Metoclopramide.

    I don't know if I need to amend my diet again or not. I hope not. With my
    husband leaving soon I want Angela and I to be able to eat as much of the
    same foods as we can. So that I don't have to buy things like two loaves of
    bread at a time of differing kinds. But my current diet is pretty high on
    the fiber scale which I know is good for most diabetics but usually not good
    for people with gastroparesis. It could be that my digestion is slowed
    enough that it is affecting me. Or... I suppose it could be the addition
    of cinnamon to my diet.

    It has been many years now since I tried the cinnamon. When I tried it
    before, it seemed to raise my BG and my Dr. told me to stop it. I was
    pilling it myself and it was having the side effect of making my mouth taste
    like cinnamon all the time. So there were things that I didn't mind eating.
    Like toast or cottage cheese. Because the cinnamon seemed to mix in. But
    it was causing aversions to other foods that I do not want mixed with

    purchased capsules. I no longer have to pill them myself.

    I love it. She's ill but doesn't think her doctor can help. She's entitled to
    some of the finest medical help in the world and isn't even interested. It's not
    like she's asked for help and disagrees with it, she's just rejected the
    possibility of help. Once more demonstrating her masochism

    I did a Google search on Metoclopramide withdrawal. Do any of these
    look useful?

    Metoclopramide
    http://www.drugs.com/metoclopramide.html
    After you stop taking metoclopramide, you may have unpleasant withdrawal
    symptoms such as headache, dizziness, or nervousness.

    Couldn't do that since I was only taking one pill per day. I guess most
    people have to take it with every meal but... My vomiting when it came,
    only came in the middle of the night to the early morning. So I was taking
    it at bedtime.
