Welcome to The Climb, your weekly journey with Lifecycle Sherpa, where we explore Parkinson’s Disease, its symptoms, treatments, tips, techniques, and build a supportive and knowledgeable community.

This week’s trail leads us to…Nausea, Vomiting and Bloating

Question: What is it? Why does it happen? What can I do to manage it?

Answer: Nausea and vomiting can occur as a result of medications, or even without medications. Bloating is also common.

Bloating occurs often as a result of decreased movement in stomach muscles (breakdown of the nervous system and brainstem.)

Tip: Here are TWO:

1) Medication is the only definitive way to address these symptoms.

2) However it is always good to make sure to eat nutritious, fibrous foods.

Expert Tip: Try adding a fiber supplement to your daily routine such as Metamucil. It will help move your bowels more easily.
