Diabetes. Dizziness, lack of sleep and unfocused. what can cause this?

hello, my mother has a history of 10 years diabetes plus she has kidney problems as well, her creatinine level is 3.5 but kind of stable, she has blood pressure as well, her uric acid is sometimes high, but from the past 2 months she is having some different kind of attacks, when the attack is there she feels dizzy, short of breath and her head is heavy and she starts losing consciousness , she starts losing her focus, the attack comes at random times, like when shes going back to sleep in the morning and sometimes during her sleep also. we dont know what to do please help. We have already done the heart checkup, thinking that there might be a problem in the heart but everything is fine. If you would like to see her reports which were done very recently I can send it to anywhere but please help us. She also had a skin reaction around 9 months ago from the medicine lyrica and after that she recovered in about 1-2 months but she again had a skin reaction from the medicine zyloric and thank god she recovered soon from that, it wasnt that severe. but this problem is very new, can it be a problem of like some medicine is stopped and the body needs that medicine now? because there are 2 medicines which she took for 2 years but now she stopped, the medicines are micardis and micardis plus. what can be the possible reason behind this?
