Hello,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Your mother is already under investigations. Considering history following things need to rule out in her case:
-Is she taking any medication which is interacting with smoking.
-Seizure disorder
-Use of other substance (weed or opioid) in cigarette.

Same time it is important for her to quit smoking.

Wishing her good health and all the best.
