Symptoms:  Her speech slurs (like drunkish)
Her eyes are Glassy
she gets really tired and looks fatigued
Her reasoning capability visibly diminish
Doctor :   Thank you for your question There is limited information provided but the most important thing to note is that there are frequent changes in level of consciousness. Assuming this is not due to a drug or alcohol problem, possibilities include: thyroid disease diabetes diet induced hypoglycemia seizure disorder migraines heart arrhythmia's transient ischemic attacks from distal embolism brain aneurysm or tumor. As you can see, the possibilities are quite broad and should be investigated to best determine future management. I hope this was helpful
