In brief: Possible

But problems in gastro-intestinal tract in presence of neurological issues are typically secondary to primary brain disorder. However, diabetes can directly affect internal organs, and myopathies and myasthenia can affect swallowing.
Parkinson's may cause swallowing issues and constipation.
