Discuss : This is the right time to start discussions with her and her main doc, PCP or GP. Eliciting her preferences, being able to talk with her doc and their social worker about options going forward should shed some light. Her symptoms are worrisome for a possible medical condition and getting some input from her doc should help, most offices continue offering telemedicine/ services by phone/coordinate.
