Drifting feeling in artificial light with relief on closing the eye, pain and tightness in the shoulder, elbow, normal test results. What could be the cause?

My mother-in-law has two issues: 1. In large areas with artifical light like a store...she sees white light from the ground moving up. She told me that she feels as if she was going to drift upwards. But once she closes her eye the light and sensation goes away. 2. She has pain in her left arm between the shoulder and elbow . Feels like blood pressure cuff is too tight. She has also been to a cardiologist and had several test done, which have come back normal. Are these two symptoms related or does she have two different issues? Do you have any ideas?

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello! After a thorough & careful review of your discussion, I would like to advice you the following
1) The symptoms point to 'Complex Partial Seizures' with some localizing signs.
2) In view of the above diagnosis in my mind, I would advice you to have an immediate consultation with an eminent neurologist.
3) She, the patient needs further detailed clinical neurological evaluation & investigations like PET MRI Scan.
4) The further management should best be carried on under the observation of a neurologist & it would be better if you could hospitalize her.
Thanks & wishing a fruitful outcome!
