Brief Answer: It is a geriatric problem. Detailed Answer: Hi, thanks for calling Health care magic forum. Your mother aged 62 years had thyroid problem. You did not mention whether it is hyper or hypothyroidism. Whatever it is medicine should be used for life. She had lumbar spondylosis, and got operated twice. She also had acidity problem. She has weakness and dizziness, fallen twice. She is getting treatment, but no relief. I advise you to consult a neurologist for diagnosis and treatment. Acidity, anemia, and neuritis, deficiency of essentials, ischemia of brain may be the other causes. Present complaints are general weakness to the extent of unable to walk, more in the morning and evening. Means when the stomach is empty. Hypo thyroidism, anemia, acidity can be the most possible causes. Accordingly, you can approach the doctors. Wishing her a quick and complete recovery.
