My nearly 92 yr old mum, who lives 88 miles away and I talk to every morning on the phone, has been complaining of nausea for 2 weeks now.
It happens when she gets out of bed. She apparently is fine during the day, just affects her for the first hour or so. ( A bit like me and sciatica !!!)
One night she was sick and had diarrhea all night long but has now gone back to the nausea every morning. She says she also feels bloated and has a lot of wind.
Mum finally went to the doctor today and he has said " Come back in 3 or 4 days if no better but it could just be a virus.
Mum never goes out, my sister goes over to her every Sunday. Not sure about the virus possibility.
She is in good health otherwise apart from arthritis every where ( pain) and ongoing diverticulosis which flares up every so often. Two hip replacements and one knee replacement. Keeps active, eats her own fresh fruit and veg all the time.
When I saw Mum in early September I thought how well she looked.
She had breast cancer 9 yrs ago.
Does anyone have any thought or know of any old people suffering from nausea upon rising?
I am really hoping it is just an old age thing
