    Hello concerendDaughter and Welcome -

    We are sorry to hear about what your mom is experiencing, it is great that you are looking for answers for her.

    We have a couple of suggestions for you, but unfortunately it is impossible to diagnosis these symptoms with out a thorough exam, history and tests.

    Please talk with her doctor to see if she can be referred to a gastrointestinal specialist. Has she any workups or exams for these problems?

    Keeping a journal of times she takes medications, what she is eating, how she is feeling and what her activity is may be helpful for the doctor to evaluate what's going on.

    In the meantime, please see these resources for more information -

    Hoping you find answers soon,
