Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
Cough is a protective mechanism that naturally occurs in the body to keep the respiratory tract from foreign objects, and the response to a disease in the respiratory organs.
Coughing can be caused by bacterial, viral, or fungal infections, allergies, and abnormalities in other organs such as the lungs and heart.
Please note that cough and heart disease are quite related. The heart and lungs are interconnected organs. The heart is in charge of pumping oxygen-less blood to the lungs, and pumping oxygen-rich blood from the lungs throughout the body. Congestive heart disease or heart failure is one of the causes of chronic cough. Left and right heart failure is characterized by weakened heart contractility in pumping blood. Left heart failure often causes blood to be difficult to pump throughout the body, as a result blood will accumulate in the left ventricle until there is a buildup of fluid into the lungs. Lung that excess fluid due to blood that can not be channeled out of the heart will fill the alveoli / air bag and cause complaints of coughing and tightness. Heart muscle that is disrupted due to coronary heart disease can also affect the heart pump and can impact on the lungs causing respiratory problems.
The presence of spots on the larynx / pharynx or in the tonsils can indicate a viral, bacterial or fungal infection that is attacking. Usually followed by symptoms of swallowing pain, sore throat, redness, white spots on the tonsils, and fever.
I suggest you to check the condition of your mother to a cardiologist. Your doctor will thoroughly evaluate whether your cough is caused by a heart, lung or other infectious disease that attacks the respiratory tract.
So much information that I can do, hopefully it helps
