I'm on no medication,but my bowels have been exploding for two days, although I'm eating very little, mostly toast and tea. Is this a case for a gastroenterologist or is it Parkinsons?

The most common complaint is constipation. I did have scary diarrhea when I took Entacapone. I had to stop talking it.

What symptoms does Carbidopa-Levodopa treat?

What symptoms does Carbidopa-Levodopa treat?

My husband has stooped posture, muscle rigidity, oily face, weakness on right side, back pain and walking difficulty. He has bladder urges especially at night and constipation, but he doesn't have a tremor. He didn't start taking this medicine last year because I heard it can cause you to start having tremors. Does anyone else take this medicine even though they didn't have tremors???
