How old is your mother?
One of the causes of dizziness and dizziness is vertigo. Vertigo is a spinning feeling of dizziness accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Vertigo itself can actually be caused by various causes, such as side effects of certain drugs, Meniere's disease, trauma to the head area, disorders of the middle ear, or disorders of the ossicular bones of the ear. Usually vertigo rarely causes symptoms such as pain in the head such as being hit by a stone, and vertigo does not cause changes in behavior.
If indeed your mother feels severe headaches and is accompanied by changes in behavior, then it is feared that it may be due to a tumor in the brain. Tumors in the brain itself can be malignant or benign. Tumors in the brain can cause pressure on the surrounding organs, so the symptoms that can be caused by brain tumors differ depending on their location. In general, brain tumors can cause symptoms such as chronic headache that gets worse, blurred vision, weakness in limbs, and can be accompanied by cognitive dysfunction such as memory and behavioral disorders. Brain tumors require diagnosis using other investigations.
But besides that, the condition that your mother is experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
high blood pressure
Therefore, to ascertain the cause of your mother's condition, you should check your mother directly to a neurologist, so that the doctor can further check your mother's condition. Maybe later additional examinations will be carried out such as blood tests, X-rays, or MRI / CT scans if necessary.
