Narcotic pain meds and anticholinergics - things that generally slow digestion - are most often linked with delayed emptying.

Overall, the most common cause is thought to be diabetes. Some other causes are suggested to be surgery on the stomach or vagus nerve, viral infections, anorexia nervosa/bulimia, sometimes GERD, muscle disorders like amyloidosis and scleroderma, and central nervous system problems like Parkinson's.

Many people also have what is called idiopathic gastroparesis - the cause is unknown. .
