My 83 year old mother suffers from chronic fatigue and pain, extreme dizzyness and overall weakness. She cannot walk more than 5 minutes without having to sit down with labored breathing. All these symptoms started in the past 7 to 8 months. Prior to these symptoms, she was strong, exercised twice weekly. She does have extremely high blood pressure (185 to 205) and the medication she is taking does not seem to be able to keep it down. She has had many, many blood tests with no diagnosis. Any suggestions?
Your mother may be suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The dizziness may be due to high blood pressure and the use of blood pressure medications as well. Please consult a physician and cardiologist for complete examination, treatment of blood pressure and diagnosis of the cause. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
