My mother - age 96 - complained yesterday and today

My mother - age 96 - complained yesterday and today about burning pain in her mouth and throat when she eats, as if she’s eating spicy food like chile or has burned her mouth with hot food, even though she hasn’t done either one. Her tongue is a bright red, no white patches. No fever. She wears dentures which are old and ill-fitting. I’d like any suggestions of what it could be or what to do. (Milk soothes the pain. Her prescription meds - losartan, amlodipine, and omeprazole - have not changed for 2 years.)

Hello, My mother had a fall down some stairs yesterday evening, she did not loose consciousness but she did have a knock to her head, although no cuts or bleeding on her head or elsewhere. Throughout the rest of the evening she felt ok, no headache/feeling of dizziness and she could not feel any bumps on her head. This moring, she said she felt ok, was not sore anywhere and still had no headache or dizziness. Although she said she is fine and is not in any pain, should we be concerned at all about internal bleeding or whould she have felt the effect of that before now? If she did have any injury to the head, skull/brain would she have felt pain straight after the fall? Thank you. Beverley

My mother in law was recently diagnosed with COPD. She has been on Symbicort (twice per day) and Spiriva once per day. She is complaining that all the food she eats tastes different. She says even her lips feel different. Could one of the meds she takes have a side effect that makes food taste different?
