I have a problem.
my daughter actually is the one with the problem...stomach/gastro-type problems. she'll be 13 on Tuesday the 21st and she's in 8th grade. she started school on this past Tues. the 14th and missed Wed. her 2nd day of school cuz she had diarrhea and stomach cramping and felt like she was gonna puke. she has NOT gotten her period yet and I don't think that is the problem. Thursday she went to school ok but did say that she had a little bit of an upset stomach. Now it's Friday and she was on the toilet when I woke up at 5:45 and I asked her what she ate, NOTHING, so she hadn't eaten yet and she's already on the toilet. I thought it was maybe that she was eating too much of a heavy breakfast before school.
then I turned psychological and asked if she had any problems at school, but she JUST started, what could be happening yet?? she said that everything was fine and she WANTS to go to school.
Last year she missed about 4-5 days because of this same problem and the doctor said to just make sure she eats light in the morning, like just a boiled egg and it worked for a LITTLE while but at least once a month she calls from school about her stomach problems and I have to pick her up and most of the time by the time we get home , SHE'S FINE!! that's why I think maybe it's an unconscious thing in her head but I need to find out what's wrong if it's physical or mental. My mom WANTS me to take her to a psych consult. I don't know, maybe I'll try the pediatrician AGAIN, maybe it is something wrong like IBS or something. I just wanted to see if any of you had some suggestions.
