Welcome to JA and thanks for asking

There are two possibilities to consider here

A possibility of an ear problem should be considered as this might be an internal ear problem.

A viral infection is also a possibility which can cause these symptoms

Another thing is a high blood pressure which should be ruled out as well

I would suggest that she may take some anti-histamine for her spinning head,but more importantly she need to see the doctor for an evaluation.

Good luck
