Brief Answer:
please see details.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX
1. The pictures of ECG uploaded by you are not complete. Please re-upload them.
2. The vertigo has many causes. High blood pressure is one of them. If her vertigo has not decreased substantially, You need to consult your doctor again, who has seen her before. One has to see If she has no other neurological symptom like vomiting, headache, loss of power in limbs, swaying while walking, double vision or speech abnormalities and her examination reveals nothing alarming ? or If the symptoms are decreasing substantially. These points will determine the future course of action. A vertigo induced by certain postures or sudden change in position is usually benign, but needs confirmation by a specialist. Meanwhile avoid moving her out of house alone and avoid dangerous places like going to roof.
3. Her total cholesterol is not alarming but it would be better if you can provide levles of other fractions like LDL cholesterol.

Feel Free to discuss further.

Brief Answer:
ECG- No siginficant changes. Physician/neurology consultation

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

1. The ECG does not show any significant finding.
2. It is best to consult a physician (MD Medicine or MRCP) or a neurologist for this vertigo. It will not be prudent to take any medication without consultation. Because more than the relief of symptoms, the exact cause of symptoms should be known.
