Vagus Nerve Connection – Forum feedback

Newbie Total Posts:  18 Joined  2012-03-07 Hi everyone, I have been doing some research (pardon me, Diana, if you’ve already mentioned this) on the vagus nerve. One of the members here mentioned gallbladder issues. This motivated me to look more into our digestive issues and their relation to vagus nerve function (or lack thereof). Did […]

Vagus Nerve and Neurogenic Inflammation: Their Role in GERD

The autonomic nervous system (ANS or visceral nervous system) is part of the peripheral nervous system that acts as a control system functioning largely below the level of consciousness while it controls visceral (the “inner parts” of the body) functions. The ANS affects heart rate, digestion, respiration rate, salivation, perspiration, diameter of the pupils, urination […]

One Theory To Explain Them All? The Vagus Nerve Infection Hypothesis for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Big Theory It could explain the Chronic Fatigue Initiatives pathogen study results.  It could show how an infection could cause chronic fatigue syndrome, and then seemingly disappear.  It integrates two of the biggest players in ME/CFS; the autonomic nervous system and the immune system. It focuses on the herpesviruses. It includes sensory nerves, an increasingly hot […]


Overview Gastroparesis literally translated means “stomach paralysis”. Gastroparesis is a digestive disorder in which the motility of the stomach is either abnormal or absent. In healthy people, when the stomach is functioning normally, contractions of the stomach help to crush ingested food and then propel the pulverized food into the small intestine where further digestion […]

Dumping syndrome occurs when food passes too rapidly (dumps) from the stomach into the upper intestine (duodenum).Symptoms of dumping syndrome that occur within 30 minutes of eating are called “early dumping.” A meal, rich in carbohydrates, that is dumped too rapidly from the stomach can cause swelling in the upper intestine. At the same time, […]

She described a pattern that was episodic in nature and involved abdominal bloating, belching, acid reflux, loose stools, shallow breathing, and palpitations. A cardiologist had ruled out serious heart disease and she’d been offered beta-blockers for what had been […]

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth in Gastroparesis
