Hi, I'm new to the boards. I have a 9 y/o dd who is complaining of abdominal pain that is worst AFTER she has a bowel movement. Her dr has been stuck in a "change her diet, double her fiber" attitude for some time (she has had constipation issues in the past, I'm concerned because the pain is worst AFTER the bowel movement. Which varies between normal and "pebbly" with floaters.)
She is currently on a dairy free diet, there is a family history of celiac but her tests were normal.
Is there anything specific I should be looking for? Any tests I should ask for? Anyone have any idea why she's uncomfortable? The pain is around her umbilicus. She says it doesn't bother her before she goes, but afterwards she just wants to lay down. It lasts an hour at most, usually 15-20 minutes.

Is it sensitive skin or something else?
