My 5 year old daughter has stomach aches around the navel area that happens from time to time. It lasts a few minutes each time and goes away. Abdominal X-ray and ultrasound were done and has not found any abnormalities or umbilical hernia. Stomach pain starts while eating or drinking and also at random times. Other symptoms including the passing of stools about four to five times a day, including while having a meal.
A most recent development within the last week has had several accidents and says she did not feel it coming. This is not normal for her. No other emotional distress could be a reason.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I suspect three things, it is just assumption based on history.
1. Stomach ulcer, as she had pain after food and water.
2. Worm infection, need to have a look after food.
3. If non of the above, must be ruled out by investigations.
Then it is called functional abdominal pain. I advise you to visit a specialist. She might require one-week antibiotics and if symptoms not settled, then endoscopy also. But the best part is to visit the pediatrician. So he can evaluate her in detail and examine her.
Meanwhile, you can give symptomatic treatment. Kindly consult your doctor to discuss the suggestion and take the treatment with consent.
