In brief: Jolly her
I don't mean to be sarcastic but hypochondriacs are frequently thinking they have an illness.
Be sure she has obtianed a thorough physical from a doctor she will continue to see regularly. The doctor may be willing to book a short monthly appointment. Also your mother needs more attention.
