Could a change of stimulation parameters induce worsening of constipation

Recommended Posts

Hello Dr Okun,

I am trying to understand why i have been experiencing lately severe worsening of constipation. I am wondering if recent changes in stimulation parameters  could be the reason.  Changes were only plus ou minus 0.2 / 0.4/ 0.5 Volts on either side. I am at loss finding an explanation to this new development which  makes every day life miserable.

I guess it is possible but it is more likely just the Parkinson.  You may want to give our phone helpline a call as our nurses have lots of tips on treating constipation.  18004PDINFO.

Also, we have some information https://movementdisorders.ufhealth.org/2011/09/12/parkinsons-treatment-tips-for-constipation/
