it is now 10:05 PM. I asked my nurse for something else, but the medical docs have only offered oral Zofran or oral Vistaril, which the nurse promised me 40 minutes ago but has not brought.. I called the charge nurse about to see if the medical doc could call the neuro docs to see if that missed dose of carb/levo 25/100 could have caused spasms in my esophagus since I've had dysphagia for almost one year. They are now offering me 2 mg of oral Ativan I don't have much hope of it working because nothing I have taken orally has seemed to kick in.
You probably won't see this till morning but I may still be awake at this rate so please answer as quickly as possible. Also, my lower stomach sphincter has frozen before for up to 8 hours before Could this be the problem and would a rescue dose of 1/2 25/100 carb/levo crushed with a Vitamin C and dissolved in 3 oz. of 7-Up be useful?
Thank you from an exhausted but not sleepy Parkie.

For nausea consider increasing carbidopa (loosen) dose to go along with sine met, Tigan, or domperidone.
Hard to determine the cause.
On my last answer to your query I made some suggestions to your docs on the sinemet.
