Abdominal Muscles Clenching When Standing/walking

Abdominal Muscles Clenching When Standing/walking

I want to know if anyone has experienced severe stomach/abdominal muscle tightening/clenching when standing and walking. I've had this issue for at least 10 years. It has been slowly getting worse over the years. Is this something that could be connected to Parkinson's disease ? No MD that I have ever mentioned this to has had an explanation for this problem. It is so severe it is close to preventing me from standing up and walking.
Any advice would be welcome.
