My 11 yr old has her fifth stomach virus since Christmas. I took her in last time and they weren't concerned. But before this she had maybe five in her life. This doesn't count random times she has just thrown up once. Taking her back today. This isn't normal.

Has she recently started biting her nails or sharing drinks with friends?

Not biting nails.  Not sure on sharing drinks with friends.

I'd take her back to the doctor, or possibly another doctor if yours is stumped.  My 11 year old was just diagnosed with lactose intolerance.  He would become extremely nauseous and would sometimes throw up, and he had stomach cramps.  Does she eat a lot of milk products?  Also, I'm allergic to cherries and if I accidentally eat them it feels like someone put napalm on my insides and lit it on fire, so maybe an allergy?

She is lactose free. She has always been lactose intolerant.

If she's in school, she couldn't be sneaking it, could she?  My son did that because he wanted to eat what everyone else was eating.

I've heard that concord grape juice--the kind with no added sugar--is good for stomach bugs.

That  happens a lot around my house because my son and I have a stronger immune system than my husband and daughter. They get a bug, we get/carry it without any symptoms and end up giving it back to them. Hopefully it is something as simple as that! I know my kids get lots of illnesses repeatedly from other kids at school because a lot of parents send their kids to school sick. Good luck! I hope she feels better!
