Brief Answer:
Need further examinations

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Your mother would need chest X-Rays, Echocardiography and evaluation of neck vessels, also some lab tests, to find out the cause of swelling of neck and face and wheezing.
I would advise you to see your doctor either refer to ER in case she is very bad.
After the cause is found, the appropriate treatment can be prescribed.

Hope I could help you

Wishing a good health to your mother
