58 years old female suffering repeatedly from dizzy spells and deafness.What is causing this ?

my mum has been having dizzy spells on and off and reports some deafness in her ears just prior to this happening. She also has slurred speech whilst this happens and is qite lethargic. This happened about a month ago and now happening again and lasted about a week and prior to that it had not happened for about 4 years and then about 4-5 years before - any ideas? Mum is 58 normal weight.
