Brief Answer: Examination, investigations, second opinion help Detailed Answer: Hi friend, Welcome to Health Care Magic Your mother needs to be seen by an Internist or cardiologist again / she needs examination / more investigations may be necessary... Tiredness could be from low output (pumping) by the heart / disorder of electrolytes or kidney function; low thyroid or adrenal function; depression and so on. EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance. The treating doctor alone can suggest further based on his assessment of the situation. Good luck Take care Wishing all well God bless
