Migraine FAQs: What is gastric stasis migraine?

When migraines cause the stomach to move things along more slowly, it is called gastric stasis. It may also be called delayed gastric emptying or when it is severe gatroparesis. Gastric stasis migraine can slow down the body's processing or breaking down of foods as well as slow down the absorption of medications taken through the mouth, which causes a problem for those who take oral medicines to fight migraine symptoms. The gastric stasis migraine can occur during and between migraine attacks.
