Well do you just take her to the hospital or her pedi? If you take her to the pedi as well and you are not getting help, get a new pedi. I don't know what causes them.

I'm sorry. That must be very hard for her. I would go and get a second opinion. If you have a research medical school (such as Duke, Medical College of South Carolina, Emory ect..) I would start there. Travel may be worth it in her case if you want to get to the bottom. Usually research hospitals tend to think outside the box and have the most up to date information as well as the better doctors. I had frequent UTI's that never ended. Turned out they were not actually UTI's. I had a condition that caused my bladder to be irritated and it caused false positives on the test. So I had to drastically change my diet including what I drank. Anything with dyes in my drink or citrus was totally a no no. But it took years before that diagnosis was made and many specialists. If they can't isolate the cause then you need to keep trying different doctors. As in very specialized people.
