Brief Answer:

Need more details.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I have gone through the details. As she is not disoriented it is a good sign.

I need some more details to help you better.
1. Is she hypertensive or diabetic?
2. Is she on any medications such as for heart problems, etc?

I would suggest to get her blood pressure and blood sugar checked. If its normal, she can take anti-emetics for symptomatic relief.

In case the symptoms persists or worsens it is best to meet your physician for a detailed examination and treatment.

I hope this answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
