Help my DD is sick

Posted by   + Show Post

 I need some help my 10 year old DD has been sick for the past week. she started with a stomach ache last week on Thursday and still has it. I have taken her to the doc the hospital given her so many things and nothing works.

she says its on her left side and it feels like someone its twisting her stomach, she has heart burn so I have an idea of what it is. I gave her Zantac yesterday and today but it went away just briefly as soon as she ate some vegies she had it again. she screams from the pain the doc says its not an ulcer but I just don't know any more. have any of you ladies had a problem like this before?

I don't know what to give her to get her to feel better.

 she has stopped since a couple of weeks now she has been drinking only water lately

Quoting JCTVCBN:

 

I think she should stop drinking soda and drink more water.

Quoting NADIA-R:

 They said its not her appendix cause she would have pain on her right side. they would not say if it was an ulcer they pretty much said we are not sure what it is. we think its just heart burn. but she is not overweigh at all I know that can be common in children who are overweight. plus she eats very healthy. she does do drink soda more than other drinks.

Quoting Supervane:

I don't know what side the appendix is at but could it be that?

Is it's an ulcer is there anything other than zantac to give her?

 yeah that was my first thought appendix but she has no pain on the right side at all just the left. I got her Zantac 150 which they told me was the strongest but as soon as she eats something even fruit she get the pain again.

Quoting gammie:

This day and age NO ONE should be drinking soda it has a lot of dangers, kids especially should never be drinking soda! Google it.

If it's hurt burn there are stronger med's in a drug store. I get a lot of heart burn (Have had it all my life)and the pain is up high in my stomach and pain down low and to the side that  is not something else. If you are over wight it does get worse.

In the hospital do you know if they pushed down on her right side, if it is a appendix she will jump out of the bed in pain. Try this a home push down on her right side and let go fast and see how she feels.

I say go back and ask for a x-ray and more test a child should not be in pain for this long.  Good luck

Could it be some kind of food allergy or something or probably some foods are  not sitting well with her. or she could have gas. you should get her in  to see a gi specialist my daughter sees one due to her having reflux and stomach issues and she has to be on meds..hope she feels better.  if zantac isnt working for you dd she may have to be put on stronger meds my dd use to be on zantac and that it helped for a while. and then it stopped so now she is on a much stronger one
