I have had PD for about 7 years, i was officially diagnosed end of 2013. I have been managing the symptoms and have gradually increased the drugs I take. However, about a year ago I started to experience some new unpleasant symptoms which have got worse in the last few months. I have now been diagnosed as having gastroparesis (which can be brought on by PD). I am finding it really difficult to manage the gastroparesis because I love food and eating. I am having to eat very small amounts of food and all the foods which help with PD seem to make the gastroparesis worse. In an article I read it stated that there are no drugs that help this illness that you can take alongside the PD drugs. Yesterday I felt so hungry I had a very small curry for lunch followed by some light buffet food in the evening. I awoke this morning to a huge bloated stomach, feeling queasy but peversely feeling hungry. I have hardly eaten today and am hoping that the huge distended tum will have improved by tomorrow. I am starting to lose weight, which is fine at the moment as I have the weight to lose but i am worried about becoming underweight. I can feel a bile like feeling in my tum and 3 times now i have retched.
Are there any people out there with this condition who could give me some advice/tips how to alleviate the symptoms.
