Re: gastroparesis and MS

I do not have gastroparesis. My mother has Parkinson's and she has gastroparesis. When she was in the hospital they used a TENS unit to help her. She also tries chewing gum and increasing her fiber intake.

BTW, Welcome!!

Re: gastroparesis and MS

Hi and welcome! I actually know exactly where you live as I started out in Media PA...gastroparesis is a symtom, not a disease- so I wouldnt be surprised if many of us suffer from it as well as having MS. paralysis of the stomache, can be caused by so many different things...who told you that it was definately gastroparesis? From what Ive read, its pretty tough to get a positive name for this sort of thing (it can be caused by so many things).

My stepfather also has Parkinsons and has been told he has this as well..I wonder if its becoming the new "thing" to call stomache problems with Neuro problems??

Re: gastroparesis and MS

Hi Nikki,

Thanks for the welcome. You are right, gastroparesis is a symptom and is associated with many conditions including MS, diabetes, Parkinsons,and ideopathic (unknown). I had never heard of the MS connection until I was diagnosed and wondered if there were others with both conditions "out there". As I research the subject I'm beginning to think old age is the major predisposing factor. Since that is close to describing me, I guess it doesn't matter if MS is the cause!
