My 74 year old mother fell off a bench and

My 74 year old mother fell off a bench and hit the back of her head very badly. Since then she has never felt well about 3 months. Her blood pressure is over 220 and no medication is working. They have tried 4 different kinds and doubled up with 2 at a time. They continue to look at her heart and blood tests. I am afraid she will have a stroke and have asked for a cat scan on her head. No one will listen. What should I do??

Hi, my 74-year-old mother felt nauseous this morning and had to leave a movie. Tonight, she called out as she began to lose her balance while walking, and I caught her from behind. She told me she had begun to faint when she lost her balance and I caught her; had I not been there, she probably would have fallen on her face. She adamantly refuses my entreaties to see a doctor, even though she has health insurance. She claims she was just tired. What could the possible diagnosis be for the nausea this morning, and the fainting while walking tonight? What can I possibly tell her to convince her to get checked by a doctor?

My Mother is 74 years old. She has continuous diarrhea and vomiting pretty much daily. She has had every scan you can think of and nothing can be found. Stool samples have been taken and comes back fine. Blood work multiple times and comes back fine. Do you know what could be possibly going on. This is just so very hard on her.
