Pediatrician Dr. Suryakanta Baraha's  Response
welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
it could be due to multiple causes and only a small percentage of them arise from the heart
it may be muscles or bone and joint problem or due to problems in gastrointestinal tract like stomach(gastritis).it may be also due to lungs related problems
if your mother suffering from diabetes, hypertension, obesity then heart related pathology can be suspected
its better to consult a cardiologist who can diagnose the condition. some investigations like ECG and spirometry may be needed
take care
