My mom is 49 and has had breast cancer, and basal cell carcinoma. She has now had very severe abdominal pain, fatigue, loss of appetite. Was in the ER and they told her it was a hiatal hernia and H pleyori infection. They gave her antibiotics and pain medication and sent her home. She was feeling a little better and now she's started having numbness and tingling in her legs. She was also diagnosed about 2 months ago with high blood pressure- she was on atelenol for a few weeks then her BP dropped and was on th elow side so they discontinued it- now it's still low. Just a lot of weird random symptoms that the Dr's are treating each one individually, and I just really feel like they are missing some larger picture here. Also, just a tidbit- I was recently tested for the genetic mutation of Li-fraumeni syndrome- so I'm wondering about the possibilty of some sort of sarcoma of her intestine or something...
