Thank you for posting your query.

Your wife is most likely suffering from migraine. Headaches and dizziness are part of this illness.

These episodes may get triggered with smells at times.

If the frequency of headaches is more than two times per month, she needs preventive medications, such as flunarizine, beta blockers, divalproex or topiramate.

For relief of headaches, she may use rizatriptan or sumatriptan tablets.

Best wishes,
