A1I agree with Dagmar. It can be most likely caused by another occlusion or re-occlusion inside the heart blood vessels. Since that is a life-threatening case, I strongly suggest you to bring your mother into a hospital (for complete check up), or just call your cardiologist to have first treatment.

Meanwhile, that will be better if you have emergency oxygen (just in case you'll need it) with you.

A2Deterioration of physical condition may result from re-occlusion of the blood vessels of the heart, leading to failure of the heart. However, other causes such as anemia, side effects of drugs, thyroid problems and others may cause similar signs, so consulting a doctor may be recommended.
