Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The description is highly suggestive of Sick Sinus Syndrome.
In view of the long history, she should be seen by an Electro-physiologist -
Electro Physiological Studies (EPS) resembles angio – a catheter is put inside the heart / electrical activity recorded / stimulation and suppression tests are carried out / suitable medicine tested and so on. Though the test is the gold standard, it is INVASIVE and has a risk (though minimal) and is not generally done unless there are compelling indications. This super-speciality expert is called ELECTRO-PHYSIOLOGIST. The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.
She may need a pace-maker...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
