Brief Answer:
Please get a CT scan head done

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

This seems like a case of space occupying lesion in brain. Kindly get a CT scan head as soon as possible to prevent further damage. Take it as an emergency.
Does she have any other symptoms?

See a neurologist or a general surgeon for further evaluation.
