Thanks for posting your query.

It seems like your mother may have a thyroid gland dysfunction. Please get her fasting thyroid profile done which includes T3, T4 and TSH.

This should rule out one possibility in her.

Else, it can be because of viral fever, or it can also be due to increase in basal metabolic rate, which is normal.

Hope this helps you.
