Severe stomach pain and Parkinson's

Recommended Posts

Both my parents suffer from Parkinson's. My mother, currently 85, has been struggling with Parkinson's for at least ten years. In 2006 she had a DBS implant which successfully treated her left side. The disease, however, has progressed to her right side and after much thought, we have decided the risk of a second DBS operation is too great. Her most difficult issue is severe stomach pain--the onset occurring about 90 minutes after her noon meal. And now within the last month, she is also experiencing abdominal pain regularly each evening following supper. Motillium has not been effective in alleviating her debilitating symptoms, Tums sometimes offers minimal relief. She has seen specialists but no one seems able to find a successful treatment. Could you please make suggestions? Thank you.
