My mother is 69 years old and
suffers from chronic episodes of sharp abdominal pain and
, generally (but not always) after eating; occurring approx. every week to
Sometimes upper abdominal aches appear without nausea or vomiting
, these may very occasionally be severe enough to
keep her bedridden for a few hours. Diahrea also occurs, but is fairly rare. She is overweight, extremely sedentary but not an overeater.
She drinks regularly, and also suffers from incontinence.
