Your Mother needs to go back to her doctor. These are serious health conditions and cannot be answered on line. Talk to her doctor and be sure to follow his advice regarding medication and diet. Let us know how she is doing.

A good doctor, he or her, will know what to do. But, I can tell you that I too suffer from it and this has helped me.

I often sit in front of the computer too long so my rule is now that I set a timer and at 90 minutes, I go lay down for 30.

I either lay flat and put my feet up, or I sit and lay my feet flat. I sometimes just rest but more often I am reading or crocheting.


There is another thing she can do and that is to reduce the salt intake by at least 80%. I make a 'pepper and salt' shaker that is 75% pepper and 20% salt and 5% garlic powder. Then, when I begin shaking it, I see the pepper and stop sooner, thus reducing the intake of salt.

If you begin reading the food labels it's ludicrous how much they put in things...not to mention the sugars! So, those are just two things I have done to help me. Just 8 months ago I weighed 198 lbs and now I weigh 165 lbs. Just the salt alone made a huge difference so I hope this helps her.
