Based on the details she is having seizure phenomenon (type of fits with loss of consciousness and tingling hands)

The cause of it need to be evalauted ( CT scan/Mri brain to rule out structural lesion or whether it is ischemic seizure)

Treatment depends on imaging brain. Meantime she can be started on anti epileptic drugs (oxecarbazepine, levetiracetam, sodium valproate etc)
