Thanks for the query.
First,I dont think that her symptoms of dizziness and nausea are directly related to the kidney stone.These are gastro intestinal symptoms and should occur due to an GI problem or due to circulatory problems.

She should get her Blood pressure checked first.Then if its normal,positional vertigo is a common cause.I would suggest that she see a doctor and have a general check up first.She can take tab domperidone and pantoprezole for the nausea.Also hydrate her well.
Please get back to me for follow up queries.
