Just went on this website. Hope your daughter is doing better. Just trying to get some information on this condition & saw the following on another website. I know your statement mention that your daughter had problems with her rib cage. Do you think that might be affecting the vegal nerve since it seems to reach all the way down to the stomach? Please see below:

The vagus nerve is the longest of the cranial nerve. Its name is derived from Latin meaning "wandering". True to its name the vagus nerve wanders from the brain stem through organs in the neck, thorax and abdomen.

Again, hope your daughter's doing better.
