Thanks for query,
By only symptoms like sore breast or sore head it is difficult to decide pregnancy.It may be due to other reason like hormonal imbalance or menopause or any other disease .
You must take home pregnancy test to confirm her status.
As she is 48 years old it is a high risk pregnancy needs more attention for both baby & mother.
She also needs medication for better child.
