Your mother: may have a serious condition and may need to be evaluated sooner as opposed to later .She may need some tests to be done. If this is sudden and new she may benefit from ER evaluation today. If this old and not sudden, but more gradual, and she feels fine otherwise- calling her Doctor in the AM to be seen would be prudent. We try not to diagnose in this forum.
