Brief Answer: these symptoms alone are not significant Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX I have read your query and understand your concern for your mother. Going by just the symptoms that she is currently experiencing, i.e. pain in chest while swallowing and uneasiness in head, it does not seem like something significant. Please look for other associated symptoms like shortness of breath or difficulty in breathing, excruciating and unbearable chest pain, drowsiness and loss of orientation to space, time. These are tell-tale danger signs. If these are present in your mother, then it is significant. The symptoms your mother is currently experiencing is most likely due to recurring gastritis problem, and probable electrolyte disturbance. Hope this helps you understand the situation better.
