Parkinsons related stomach pain
sonwithquestions posted:
My mom was diagnosed with PD and has experienced ongoing constipation and stomach 'tightening'. Are there suggestions for relieving the stomach pain not related to constipation that is better than Maalox? I would like to ask her PCP and gastroenterologist about any suggestions.
Mark A Stacy, MD responded:
Dear sonwithquestions,
I agree with an evaluation from her doctors. She may find that PD medication will help these symptoms. I also would suggest increasing her fluid intake - by at least two 8 oz glasses of water per day

I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome in addition fo the Parkinson's. My GI doctor put me on RX strength Miralax daily and it is helping VERY much. Be sure she is getting enough fiber through food as possible as well as the fluids.
