Gastroparesis: Do you have underlying diabetes? If so controlling diabetes will reveal some of your symptoms. Under guidance of your GI specialist, you may want to try metaclopramide, Erythromycin or even a gastric pacemaker if you the right candidate. Reactive gastritis is due to some offending event or substance. Can be controlled by avoiding the offending agent like alcohol or coffee, spices/ antacids help.
