Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I think you might need to have your mother be seen by an internal medicine specialist as soon as possible. She seems to be having cardiac ischemic pain from the description in your question. I would recommend that you go to the ER as soon as possible. Take care and I hope and wish the very best for your mother!
