A lot of us retain fluid when we get our periods and not getting them can mean a build-up of fluid which often goes to our legs and feet and ankles. Low progesterone levels can cause fluid retention and that may be the case with your mom since she is missing periods.  Fluid build-up in the legs can cause some discomfort like aching and tightness and stiffness but, it could also be something more that needs to be looked at by a doctor.  

Swelling and pain could be any number of things, including menopause but, really should be checked out by a doctor to be certain as to the cause.  This is especially true if one leg is more swollen than the other, hot/reddened.  There could be a couple of causes combined so, a doctor should be consulted just to rule out anything further that may need treatment.  

Please update us.  Best wishes!
