Thanks for asking on Health care magic.

I have gone through your query. It seems to be nothing but Pathological laughter and cryin, Also called: PBA, pseudobulbar affect. PBA is a neurologic condition which means it's caused by damage to the nervous system. You therefore need to take her to a neurologist at the earliest.
