Serious dizziness

My mom is experiencing serious dizziness since 2 months. It happened approximately 10 times since then. My mom wakes up in the middle of the night and she tells us to hold her head tightly during the dizziness. It lasts for 10 mins. Doctors say that it is Vertigo. But, what is the main problem behind it?
