Hello, you daughter sounds exactly like me. Mine started int he summer after my freshman year, I am 20 and weigh 103 lbs. and am 5'5. I was very athletic before this happened as well. There is no exaplnation as to why some people get it and some dont. It is more likly with younger twenties females. Try to increase salt, tons of liquid, gateraid seems to be the best. They say you will grow out of it. I have had it for about 8 months now.
