Nausea

Nausea

Is nausea a common symptom in PD? My husband has an MRI scheduled for next week (7th) and has not started on any medications yet. He has daily bouts of nausea sometimes accompanied by vomiting. The "bouts" are getting to be more often just over the past few days. He could hardly stand yesterday because of it so just laid on the couch.

Yes, I take sinemet with crackers - that helps! No Carbo dopa-levadopa-
30 min before or after protein intake also helps.

MaryStephens,
Yes, yes, yes… I went for a long time being sick, nausea, vomiting, & headache every morning. So many (even my neurologist) would tell me it was probably my medication. That can not be true. My last meds are at 8pm & I take time released c/l . But I was sick the minute I opened my eyes. I would vomit (nothing in my stomach yet) & I hadn’t taken any meds. That went on for a long time. I couldn’t eat. I felt stuffed if I ate even a half sandwich. I lost weight. One day I just wasn’t that sick anymore. It was like I moved into another phase of Parkinson’s. I really think there must be phases because one symptom leaves or at least isn’t as front & center and another (or more) take its place. I still eat very little… never what would be concerned a real meal.
This is a very weird & painful life we are all living. We are here to encourage each other as we each travel this road. Good Luck!!

I definitely have nausea from time to time. I don’t vomit, but I end up on the couch. I drink water or club soda to try and get my stomach to settle.

Good morning. My guy also walks every morning right after he does some weights (when he's having a "good" day) :Luckily, his good days outnumber his bad.. He hasn't touched on any balance training and honestly, his walking pace isn't very aerobic. I'm going to research some balance training and hopefully add that to his daily routine. Thanks so much!!!!

Thank you everyone for your input. Part of the problem is that it’s so different for each of us. The MDS at Mayo told me the more cardio ex I can do the better. I walk about 3 miles each am and have been doing balance and agility training with PT x/week for a couple of months which has helped immensely! I’m also very Type A, so I’m always running around doing laundry, cleaning, etc. some days though my legs feel encased in cement. I love that sites like this exist where we can ‘trade notes’. I feel like part of the anxiety we feel
Is because we don’t know what’s normal.
