Hi,
My mom first had a brain tumor when I was 5 years old, it was benign and it was removed but it left the left side of her face paralyzed, and part of her throat is paralyzed as well so she can choke on spicy foods sometimes.

She then had kidney stones when I was 8, after the birth of my little brother.

When I was 16 she had Gall Stones and had her Gall Bladder removed.

Now, I'm 17 and she is having a lack of circulation in her arms to the point where she has to move her skin up and down to get the blood to circulate. It is now spreading to her legs and her arms and legs hurt.

I'm really scared and worried for her, the doctors used to say it was only stress - I'm really hoping someone can help her. Does anyone see a trend or at least set us in the right direction?
