In brief: Concerning

She needs to be seen, Big tongues can be due to amyloidosis, hypothyoridism or some other things.
Poorly coordinated tongue may be from stroke or much else.

In brief: Swallowing problem

I need more information to fully evaluate the question.
She will need to see her family doctor or an ent to get a swallowing study with an esophagram to look at the esophagus too. Hope this helps.
