I seem to be writing on here a lot lately but so worried about my Mum who's blood platelets are high, who keeps getting breathless (not sure if this is anxiety or not) and who is suffering with aches all around her waist and back, just under her ribs. She is waitibg for a scan but we all know that its the waiting that we all worry about.
The doctor said her aches were due to her coughing lots through her infection but she hasnt done alot of coughing. She says she just doesnt feel right and is concerned as she has no appointment to see someone for another 6 weeks!
I told her to get a second opinion from another dr but she says she has lost all confidence.
I try to give advice, reassure and listen byt it just doesnt help😢
I was texting her tonight and she said "I am feeling uptight so will go now"
Has anyone else experienced breathlessness with aches all around their middle at all?
I just don't know what to do for the best and worry that her worrying will just make her worse.
