My daughter (13) was dignoised with ongoing stomach pain in May this year. Since this happened she had stomch pain and nausea every day. She missed about 30 days of school a term because she was in so much pain and felt sick all the time. She was then referred to a paediatric gastroenterologist when she under went so many tests including MRI, ultrasound, X-Ray, colonoscopy, gastrocopy and breath tests. Mild gastritis was found and she was given emeprazole tablet. She took this for 4 months but the pain remained, she had a blood test and found her iron was 129 double what it should be for her age! She has been admitted to the children’s hospital many times because of bad pain. The pain is still undignoised but she is managing it better, she has her good and bad days. I just hope my daughter gets better soon.
