I'm sorry to hear about your mother. All I can say is, that it probably would be a good idea for her to see a hepatologist (liver specialist), as they are more familiar with those kind of symptoms, than GP's.

I have a similar thing happen - mostly with my arms and hands - but legs as well. It is periferal neuropathy I believe and can happen with treatment - I  pray it goes away after...pretty sure it will. Check out this site
