A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

A symptom complex of the headache, left red eye, swelling of he feet, legs and arms needs a proper clinical evaluation, detailed history, proper physical examination and investigation to get to the proper diagnosis.

The probable reason of swellings are:
Anemia, hypo-proteinemia, a general disorder of the kidneys or heart.
The resultant increased Blood pressure can give headache and red-eye.

Hence, it is important to have the ways to get a proper diagnosis as explained above.
I hope this answer helps you to take a proper decision to take your Mother to the physician for proper diagnosis.
