My 7 year old daughter has been getting really bad stomach aches, heartburn, and diarrhea. I'm not sure if these symptoms are all connected to 1 problem or separate problems. Last year I took her to a pediatric GI doctor and he said sounds like she is lactose intolorant. So I cut out all milk, casien, and whey. This seemed to work for awhile but now she is starting to get really bad stomach aches again along with diarrhea and occasional vomiting. As well as severe heartburn. I have been keeping a journal of her symptoms here is a copy of just a few days:
3:10 PM Heartburn
3:30 PM Heartburn & Stomach Ache
5:00 PM Heartburn & Stomach Ache
6:00 PM Heartburn
6:45 PM Stomach Ache & Diarrhea
5:00 AM Nauseous & Vomiting
7:00 AM Nauseous & Vomiting
11:30 AM Nauseous
1:45 PM Heartburn
2:15 PM Stomach Ache
7:45 PM Nauseous
6:00 PM Heartburn
7:30 PM Heartburn
8:15 PM Heartburn
9:30 PM Diarrhea
This is on a daily basis.
In the last 3 years she has had 2 Inguinal Hernia surgeries. After doing a search on the internet for causes of severe heartburn I found that a possibility is a Hiatal hernia. Which normally I would just brush the idea of that to the side but considering that she has had 2 previous surgeries for hernias in the past really makes me wonder if this could be the cause of her symtpoms.
I am taking her to the doctor Monday. But in the mean time I would just like some ideas as to what this could be or if anyone has experienced this before.
