Question Numbness whole body and dizzy spells

Hi. When I was 16 my mother started to have dizzy spells. She couldn't move and would start to smack her lips together. I would have to carry her to the couch and she would lay there with her eyes blinking and then we would wait about 1 minute or 2 for whatever was going on to be gone. Another thing is that she always needs water she can almost drink half of a gallon after the episode. I am now 21 and this still goes on but a little different. She has always said her hands get really numb. But a couple of times she says that her brain is working but her body is numb. She can't move she can't do anything. They last longer now. No doctor has been able to say this is what it is. She takes no medication whatsoever. Yesterday she was numb for about 30 minutes. Recentely we went to a special chriropractor and he actually brought the dizzy spell out of her. The best part was, was that she now can move while it is going on, her lips still smack. Anyhow is there anyone who knows what might be going on. She is 49 now.
