My mother is talking out of her head and has not slept in the last 24 hours
does she have any known medical problem?
She is 90 years old
i am assuming that she was otherwise healthy
this is something for which you need to see the doctor
this could bes something like a mini-stroke
such symptoms may be caused by a mini-stroke
it may also be caused by acute psychotic episode, mania, etc
hence it is important that you show her to a doctor ASAP
ask for an MRI of the brain which will be confirmatory
have her checked up at the earliest
any further questions?
if necessary you have to take her to the ER if you cannot talk to a doctor directly
this is important to keep her safe
specially because of her age
best to take her to the ER
