Mother is ill

My mother is in her 70''s and lives in Limpopo. She called me to say she is feeling sick and I must send medicine. She has pains in her body and joints and has ''flu''. What can I send to her as she is far from a clinic in a small rural village.

Hallo Rendani
There are so many diseases that can give these symptoms like Malaria, flu, arthritis, gout and many others. It is safer for her to see a doctor or go to a clinic if possible. Neurofen plus/or Panado will help for joint pain if she does not have heart failure or allergies for these medications.
