Clinical features and gastric myoelectrical activity in patients with idiopathic and post-surgical rapid gastric emptying who present with unexplained chronic nausea.


The cause of chronic nausea can be difficult to diagnose. Idiopathic rapid gastric emptying (iRGE) can cause nausea, but limited literature exists on clinical and pathophysiological features. In contrast, dumping syndrome or post-surgical rapid gastric emptying (psRGE) is well-known and may present with early phase vasomotor symptoms, diarrhea, and late phase reactive hypoglycemia. Our aim is to compare clinical and gastric motility characteristics in patients with iRGE and psRGE and unexplained chronic nausea.
