She's been checked for ascaris, nematodes, pork-born parasites like this? http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_hb4345/is_2_33/ai_n29163360/
It's the seizure cycle that obviously turns me on to that, as my ex father in law suffers from a gut worm that he has had to live with for decades as he is allergic to the remedy... comes on every six weeks... and wrecks him.

Robyn comment to Tod's email:
We have a few articles in the google collection on the pork worm parasite. The reason we haven't flagged them is that they show clear evidence of their presence on brain scans. What I've read is that they act as a physical mechanism of damage, with visible results. But perhaps there is also some toxin they excrete? As far as I can tell we would still see them on the scans. Might be a question for an expert!

Sorry to hear about your troubles and hope a solution is found quickly. I only mention the following because we experienced them.Have you been checked for Chorea Gravidarum ? MTHFR Gene issue? Antiphospholipid Syndrome? Lupus Anticoagulant?
