She's always done fairly well. VERY well last year and first marking period this year (consistent A/B honor roll every marking period). Well, she started having stomach problems in October and missed some school. Final diagnosis was GERD...
Anyway, now she is having major issues with getting up and wanting to go to school, completing her homework, etc. She will start getting upset, crying, complaining of instant headaches, ill stomach, and even that she can't breathe!
At first, I thought it was related to her GERD, but now I'm wondering if it could be panic attacks.
Where do I start? Pediatrician seems logical, but I don't want her to feel like she's got any more issues than she already has (with her stomach and daily medication). She hates feeling like shes always sick!

my oldest son (11 a 4th grader) was going through the same type stuff and come to find out he was getting picked on it school not only but the students but by the bus driver also. he loved school but hated going because of this. so we now home school and everyone around us has seen a big change for the better and he is doing better as far as grades he is doing 5th grade work and loves it. so i would look into things other than your child is doing and look at things that are being done to your child.
