Thanks for posting your query.

At her age common reasons for giddiness are:

>Some problems related to ear
>High blood pressure
> Some issues with blood circulation in brain

The best thing is to take her to doctor and get her examined. She needs to be examined by a doctor to look for the cause.

In mean time, ask her to avoid changing posture fast-moving head fast.

Take rest and light diet.

Without knowing the reason it is not advisable to give any medicines. The treatment changes as per the diagnosis.

Please consult a doctor.

I hope this helps.

Wishing her good health.
