I am sorry she's suffering from that but I am still really puzzled by the question of why so many people seem to suffer from this. It wasn't anything that was prevalent among our grandparent's time. It makes me wonder if something drastic has happened to the food supply or if there is some other environmental contaminant that is causing this.
