My mum is about 50 and she hasn't been completely well for years, but over the past two years her health has really gone downhill. Some of her symptoms are:

sporadic difficulty speaking (both from difficulty remembering the correct word and from stuttering which she never used to do)

pain when she eats

abdominal pain

infrequent bowel movements

seemingly incurable helicobacter

incredible hair loss

physical weakness

difficulty with balance

periods of physical numbness

periods of physical hypersensitivity

sporadic memory loss

sporadic confusion

thinning skin

periods of fluid retention and periods where she is extremely thin


for a while I think she was having seizers

She has been seen a number of doctors, all of whom claim to be at a loss. If anyone know of a medical condition that can cause some if not all of these symptoms, please please let me know.
