Have any of the doctors taken biopsies of her stomach and looked for eosinophils? I'm asking because it is possible that she may have Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis as a cause of the reflux, the gastroparesis, and the CVS. There are treatments available. Check out http://www.apfed.org/ for more info.
BTW, my Husband has Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis and he never had Asthma until his Eos. Gastroenteritis symptoms started... And research has shown there to be a correlation between allergic inflammation in the airway (Asthma) and Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders.
