I have a 9 year old daughter who has always been on the chubby side. However, she just gained 18lbs in 3 months. We noticed her abdomen getting large although she also has hefty thighs. The doctor just did blood work and we are awaiting the results. She has also lately been complaining of brief but bothersome headaches. These last a short time (5-10 minutes) but can recurr again shortly later. She does not have these every day. Her nosebleeds (only occurs on the right side) have also started again- these she has had on and off for a few years. She had one cauterization which lasted for about 6 months. She uses saline spray nightly which usually helps. I think the nose bleeds are due to the dry winter air but not sure about the head aches. The weight gain has us especially concerned. Any suggestions while we await the blood results? Otherwise she is happy and healthy.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
