The doctors suspected her for suffering from mild parkinsons. Last Satuday, she was discharged from hospital and is under medications and physiotherapy. Since last night, she is suffering from loose motions. Is it because of the medicenes?

hallo dear friend
i hv studied your case
yes that can be because of medication or gastric infection
in old age gastric mucosa can not tolerate strong medication
you have to see by stopping medication loose motion stops or not

take rest , take some analgesic , hot or cold fomentation
avoid lifting weights
sit with taking support to your back

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Medicines may be responsible / usually they are -
But it is difficult to predict in a given case - without the details of all the medications; sometimes, even with them!
Discuss with your doctor / the dose reduced or drug changed...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
