I was diagnosed with ibs when I was 45. I went back on birth control pills which stopped the attacks within a few months. 5 years later I began pd symptoms. 2 years later at 52 I was diagnosed with early pd. I was still working so I needed quality of life. I left work at 57 2 years ago taking c/l every 2 1/2 hours. I've been through different agonists with bad side effects. I've been taking azilect once a day since diagnosis. I'm up to every 2 hours except during the night when sleeping I can go 3-5 hours without Meds. Oh I use cbd oil 500 mg all day and night. No thc. It helps with all symptoms and is uplifting.
Now in the last 18 months the ibs started to recur. The clenched was the rytary. I took it last spring and almost ended up in the er. Since then the intestinal spasms have gotten worse. Now we believe I have gastroparesis. I have followed heathers tummy tamers for living with ibs. It had worked until our dog had to be put to sleep. Took about a month to calm things down. The stress triggered it again and probably the gastroparesis. I am at a loss. Like pd you can only treat the symptoms. My dr is a movement disorder spec. But I was told he only has a couple of patients like me. My pd symptoms are mostly in the ans. Spiking bp hot and cold dizzy gi tract problems/spasms. I'm now trying to find a practice or research facility working on this horrible symptom of pd. I am also talking with my gi dr but they are still in the dark about pd. I am basically a house prisoner. The pain from the gastroparesis and ibs leave me weak and disable the pd Meds. Antoine like me out there??? Judy
