  • It could be pneumonia. Could be nerves. Could be drainage causing an upset tummy. Have her seen just to be daughter went 6 weeks before a third doctor did a chest x-ray and found pneumonia! It was terrible! She had a brief cold/cough, a couple days with a low fever and then seemed normal. Played normal, ate normal but her tummy hurt all of the time. I was a little shocked.

  • Yes, that's absolutely possible. Transitions and such can result in physical symptoms. See a dr. to rule out any physical cause, like you've already planned. If all is well with the dr.'s results, you could seek the assistance of counseling if you feel the situation is that extreme - or you can address it through consistent routine, clearly stating expectations, well-known activities, and a calm and reassuring demeanor.
