swollen feet and weight loss
Good day

My mother has lost weight and now her feet are swelling and sometimes painful.
I would just like to know what she might be suffering from, she has been to two GP's who were not able to tell, what they(GP's) are currently doing is pumping her with pain tablets which are not really helping.

And what wuold you suggest we do now?

She should see a physician as there are many possible issues here, and many of them are medical ones, please ask your physician for a referral.
