Help: My mom is suffering and I want to find out why.
My mom is 46 years old but the last couple years she has been having lots of problems. Just last week we had to take her to the ER because she was having intense pain in her abdomen. They gave her a CT scan and found out that her large intestine was slightly inflamed, and they suspected her to have a minor infection. They gave her antibiotics to help her pain, and sent us on our way. Yesterday she had a follow up appointment with her doctor who told her that her lungs were inflamed and that she had an ovarian cyst. He also said she had a lot of ''stomach problems'' and they insisted on another CT scan but she refused due to the radiation, and asked for an MRI instead, doc wasn't to happy but she has a follow up appointment later this month.
My question is in what way can lung, intestinal inflammation and an ovarian cyst be related? I suspect my mom has something wrong with her stomach, either undiagnosed food allergies or h.pylori that are causing havoc on her immune system?
