New doctor this week and I'm nervous

It's been two years since Lindsay (7) started living in pain. We finally made the decision to switch pediatricians in order to get fresh eyes, but I'm nervous about it. It's been such a frustrating road, what if it's more of the same? We've tried taking her off of dairy and of gluten. We've tried different medications for acid reflux, for abdominal migraines (which actually helped but the neurologist said it couldn't be that), for depression and anxiety, and now for abdominal spasms. She's had multiple blood labs done, an x-ray and an upper and lower GI series done. She's seen a counselor, a neurologist and a GI specialist. Her stomach hurts daily and she often has headaches as well. She has not had a pain free day since Aug of '11. :( Enough is enough! I'm really hoping this doctor will have some ideas...

My dd went to a new specialist in August and she found the problem that my dd had been suffering with for 4 years. My dd is now 4.5

I had no idea there was a place called Pukalani. How funny! I was born in Lihue, Kauai and my parents gave me a Hawaiian nickname, Pukalani. :)
