Vagus Nerve? alternating diarrhea / constipation

My 10 yr old daughter had been treated for constipation which has been an ongoing problem But, over the past month she has had other symptoms associated with it (constipation): alternating diarrhea/constipation, hiccup type stomach spasms, sensitive ears and jaw pain, stomach aches, and dizziness. She also complains of feeling hot even when she is in a cool room and has no fever. Her doctor continues to treat the constipation while disregarding her other symptoms. A nurse suggested the vagus nerve might be involved. Does anyone have a familiarity with this type of condition? She sees her doctor in a few days and I would like to share any ideas with him. I know the advice I receive on here does not take the place of medical care and so on... I am just looking for ideas.
