My wife has been screaming out for the past 6 months or so, she cannot talk so finding out what the cause was presented a problem. It turned out it was toothache, she had a GA at our hospital, had several teeth removed and the rest cleaned. Another thing to check is wind, possible cause Gastroparesis.

Paracetamol can cause constipation and wind, and yes perhaps she may have toothache?
I hated the screaming and fighting that my Mother and Brother did too.
Mum was more to do with anger and jealousy, but brother was to do with teeth then constant UTI, the constipation all of which seemed to go on and on and on.
All his teeth were removed, then he was constipated, then he had a peg feed fitted as he was always hungry and couldn't swallow anymore, so was very frustrated ALL the time.
Catheter was fitted and then all was calm again.
Its a constant guessing game.
Well you lovely Mum you are there by her side 24/7 you are an earth angel in my eyes x
