My daughter is 12 years old. She has these episodes that she gets very bad stomach aches. they are so bad that she crawels in a ball and crys. then its not long she starts to vomit. she has done this for 3-4 years. there at one time she did it 1-2 times a month. she starts in the morning and vomits all day till mid afternoon till she has had dry heaves for an hour or so. i took her to ther Dr several times. one Dr said it could be reflux and other said allergies. they had me keep tack of what she ate before the episodes. nothing was out of the norm. everything she ate was things she ate before and didnt get sick on. One Dr have her Pedisure. I didnt think something that simple would work. but when she drank the Pedisure off and on through out the month the episodes stopped. she hadnt had an episode for several months now. she ran out of Pedisure and we didnt get her more. she still went a few months without the Ped and not had an episode. This month she has had 2 so far. Today is one of those days. I woke up with her at the foot of my bed in a ball crying and begging me to take her to the Doc. then she ran to the bathroom to vomit. Im going out today to get her some Pedisure. I hope it helps get her back on track. This tells me that she muct be lacking something in her diet. She is a very tiny girl for her age ( only weighs 70 pounds) She also has Kidney problems. When she was young she had a kindey ruflux and alot of infections with it. The infections damaged her kidney. the top part of her right kidney stopped working. it takes a longer time for that part of her kidney to drain then the rest of her kidney. we seen 2 specialist about it. I asked about her diet and stomach problems. they didnt say anything special about it being related to her kidney. so i dont know what could be causing her problem. im sooooo very worried. i dont want this to be something that doenst get noticed till its to late and causes damage ( like what happened to her kidney) does anyone have any idea what this could be? any advice on how to handle the Drs?
