Dear; Thanks for using our service and understand your concern about your mother-in-law. The main problem that I see is the weight loss accompanied by lack of appetite and food intolerance with vomit. It might be a malignant condition behind these symptoms. I understand that she has been under an extensive workup and will need to continue to find the reason for her symptoms. Other possibilities as malabsorption should be considered.The low magnesium makes her feel weaker and it is important to follow up potassium level too. My advise is to be patient, they are doing what they need to in order to find out the problem.
I hope that my advise will be helpful
