Hi,
How is your friend? Dizziness may occur when the brain does not get enough blood such as in sudden drop in blood pressure, dehydration, heart problems, stroke and bleeding inside the body. If she has history of heart issues and hypertension, it us best that she see her attending physician for further evaluation. Additional diagnostic tests such as blood tests, ECG, hearing tests and imaging studies like MRI  may be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.
