Brief Answer:
Approach an Immunologist.

Detailed Answer:

All the symptoms may not fit into a symptom complex of a disease a few times.

There can be complications arising out of the symptoms complex of a disease. There can be single or more than one cause sometimes, a disease leading to more complications quickly.

I see there is dry skin, dry eye, dry mouth for your mother which are more related to autoimmune diseases or Lupus or scleroderma.

I suggest meeting a reputed Immunologist with Internal Medicine who can help understand the nature of the disease and fit into one or multiple causes.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
