There are some sensory nerves that can be stretched with the position your wife holds her head to bring on the symptoms. This may indicate a mild neuropathy (temporary inflammation of this nerve). If the symptoms really disturb her, it may be that a physical therapy program with some ultrasound may be helpful. You would need a physician to diagnose and write a script for therapy.

Multiple Sclerosis normally does not present with the symptoms you describe. This does sound like a mechanical nerve disorder.
