I am a 76 yr old male. in last 2

I am a 76 yr old male. in last 2 weeks I have begun to feel somewhat dizzy when standing up, walking around corners, climbing steps. Loss of energy, simple chores are kinda exhaustive. Also, severe nite sweats and occasionally shivering chills even with bedding pulled up.
My stomach seems to be enlarged somewhat and filled with gas.
My weight is normal for my height. I have not noticed these symtoms in the past. What may be wrong??

For the last two days I have indigestion. Motions are semi solid with bad odour. I feel very listless throughout the day. Sometimes I did have vertigo. I am 76 years old with perfect health otherwise. Kindly suggest some medicine. Pankaj Kole YYYY@YYYY +0000

My mother is 76. She has a hernia on the left side of her body about the size of a football. Her general Dr. thinks it is best to do nothing about it. It is making her miserable. She has much pain from the constipation. She had surgery for a cyst that had consumed her ovary and the GYNC. pushed the hernia back in and did nothing else to address that-also telling her it would be best to leave it alone. This was 2 years ago and the hernia is much larger now. Why do these Dr. s think it best to do nothing? Should we take her to see a specialist?
