She needs proper clinical examination and investigations.
Investigations include routine hemogram,RBS,LFT,RFT,Lipid profile,ECG in all leads,Holter ECG,TMT,ECHO,Chest X-ray (PA view),Ultrasound of abdomen.

It seems form history that your daughter is suffering from some cardiac problem.
She should be examined thoroughly by cardiologist.MVP may be the cause and her symptoms may be due to progression of MVP.It can be confirmed during ECHO.

She is getting treatment for asthma only.I think her cardiovascular status should be examined thoroughly.

Proper treatment can be given after clinical examination and investigation reports.
