Thank you for the input.

The dizziness may be due to many reasons. There may be dehydration , loss of fluid or fall of blood pressure may also lead to the attacks of dizziness. Atherosclerosis, heart rhythm abnormalities BPPV or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo may lead to the symptoms of dizziness. Give adequate fluid to keep good hydration. It may also occur from anxiety or stress or any neurological cause. Drug effect may be the cause. Low heart beat can cause dizziness too. It should be investigated whether it can be a factor. As she is feeling dizziness for about 1-2 months, she needs examination by doctor to find out the precise cause. Treatment will depend on cause.

Wish her early recovery.
Any query, please ask.
Regards.
