So difficult child has been battling with a mysterious stomach issue for the last year now. We just can't figure out what is wrong with her. She gets very nauseous and throws up mostly in the morning, but it can last all day too. She also has bouts of diahrrea for no apparent reason. Yesterday was a non school day for her because it was the day after finals, so my mom came and took her out to lunch. The whole time my mom was driving difficult child felt very sick and had to ask my mom to turn the music off and not talk because the noise was bothering her. She felt a little bit better around dinner time but then again this morning she got sick. She kept saying she was going to throw up. I thought she may have been using it as an excuse to get out of going to school. Instead of asking to stay home, however, she asked me to call my mom and see if she could take her to school later when she felt better. My mom said okay to that so I left difficult child at home and took easy child to school. Right after I left, difficult child threw up. When my mom picked her up she told my mom she threw up and that she still felt sick. My mom opted to take her to the doctor's instead of school. The doctor ended up diagnosing her with a stomach virus. He also scheduled an xray for later. He is keeping her out of school for two days. But I know it's more than just a simple virus. This has been going on for a year now. She has had bloodwork that has all come back fine. She was tested for lactose intolerance but we found out that wasn't it. Then she had an abodminal ultrasound. That came back normal as well. So what could be the cause of this? I really don't know what else to check for. I thought it could be anxiety related but difficult child has stated several times that she is not anxious. Has anybody else ever experienced something like this?
