Vagal Dysfunction and severe abdominal pain

I have had vasovagal syncope for years and had a pacemaker implanted 9 years ago b/c the meds and dietary changes did not help enough.  Now, within the past year, I have been diagnosed with gastric paresis and within the last week a follow up emptying study showed even greater emptying delay.  I have also been experiencing intractable constipation and bladder retention.  Additionally my vision has been affected. I have had adrenal gland problems ruled out.  Has anyone experienced this - I do not know what to do about the pain in my stomach it is in a specific place - my EP said where the vagal nerves bundle.  I am also experiencing a worsening in asthma as well as SOB with normal activity.  I just feel like my docs don't have a good grasp of the causes beyond CFS or Lyme...thanks
