My mother is 54 years old and she is a working woman.
During the very stressful times of the year, she often has cramps along her lower abdomen area.
The same thing has happened a few weeks ago but the pain seems to be getting worse.
She says she feels bloated and sometimes as though something is poking/ stabbing her.
Her bowl movements are normal.
She may have eaten something wrong yesterday and for some reason, she's started to have diahrea today...
She recently went to the doctor and was diagnosed with having high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
She also has severe allergies this time of year.
She is taking Prilosec (as prescribed by her doctor), Claritin and another medication for her high blood pressure.
I am afraid that all these chemicals will do her harm.
She is going to go in for an endoscopy soon.
Is there a certain diet she should follow?
Is the mixture of medications harmful?
Is this a symptom of stomach cancer?
