Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service.
It sounds like youre looking for a better solution to the problem and that you are frustrated. You might want to ask your Dr about metoclopramide. This is a medication that helps with propelling food through the stomach. It may be helpful in diabetic patients with stomachs that are “paralyzed” I hope this helps.

what do you think it could be?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 5 months ago.
Diabetic patients can acquire gastroparesis or “paralysis” of the stomach
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Im not diabetic?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 5 months ago.
Oh my! I see that now. The above medication is still an option but does not solve the problem. Have you had an ultrasound of a ct scan. With symptoms for a year that should be the next step.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No Ive not! I’ll request that, thanks. What would an ultrasound or CT scan show that an endoscopy did not?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 5 months ago.
most definitely. The endoscopy only shows what is inside. I would consider asking for ct scan
