If you absolutely need SPContext in an Event Handler you can use this approach;

I have seen issues with the SPContext and SPServiceContext when the Alternate Access Mapping isn't set correctly.  Especially if someone has been changing the host header mappings in IIS.

You stated you were using Event Handlers? It's quite normal not to have access to SPContext in an event receiver. AAM doesn't come into it for that scenario.
