Brief Answer:
A clinical examination & investigation is needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, I would suggest that you should get your wife clinically examined and investigated.

It seems that she might be having concussion injury due to head injury.
A CT/MRI of head is needed for further planning of medical management.

She should take proper rest. Ibuprofen can help in reducing the pain.

I hope this is helpful to you.
If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
Regards. Thanks.
