What can these symptoms mean

My daughter has been having more and more seizure-like episodes and now has a severely sore mouth to where it even hurts for her to allow even air inside of her mouth. Although this may be unrelated, she also suffers from what she decribes as sciatica that is causing some numbeness in her right foot along with the severe pain that sciatica brings on. She has been seen by every type of Dr, all of whom tried many tests on her and who tried to evaluate this latest symptom of having a very sore mouth and she is still suffering from her seizure-like episodes which began as only happening such an episode every six months or so, only to increase in frequency this last couple of years, Now she has deoveloped what began as a sore in her mouth to full mouth inflammation and extreme mouth pain. She has tested negative by many specialists such as an oral surgeon, Oncologists, infectuious disease specialist, a Dr who specializes in Rhumatology and so on yet the only thing they could find wrong with her was that she failed an ANT test but does not have such a thing as lupus and she has alrady had a biopsy done on her tongue which came out as normal. Is the anyone out there who can put these symptoms togther, she has been losing too much weight and also a lot of her hair. She is deperate to learn of any other route she can take as far as tests, specialists or other reasons as to why this is happening to her. HELP!!!! Her Mother. JIn
