Gastroparesis is a condition that affects the normal movement of the muscles in the stomach. Usually, strong contractions move food through the digestive tract, but for those with gastroparesis, this process is slowed down or doesn’t work at all. This prevents the stomach from emptying properly. Gastroparesis can be caused by certain medications or underlying medical conditions.
