Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX
Yes it can be due to artery thrombosis or emboly especially considering that she already had similar disease. But also it can be caused by artery blockage in heart and brain or sign of parkinson. I think you should visit doctor and do at least ECG, chest and abdominal xray and basic blood tests to rule out something serious.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help
