I am a 15 year old female. Last November, I experienced what both my mom and I thought was a "gallbladder related attack". I was having trouble falling asleep from a dull pain in my lower chest, kind of between my breasts. I went downstais, and took a chewable thing for gas, but it just made me feel worse. I tried to go back to sleep, but still could not, and thats when I went into my parents room to tell them I could not sleep. All of a sudden, the pain got much worse. I was running around in circles, trying to escape the pain. My mom gave me a pill for gas too, but it did not help either and pretty soon, the only position that I could lay in and not feel like I was dying was on my back, with my body completely hoizontal, except for my neck, which was curled into my chest. My mom gave me a heating pad, which seemed to help. But it was not until vomited, almost continuously for 2 minutes, that I felt better. It was amazing how fast I went from not being able to breathe to completely fine. I was even laughing at the strange thing that had just happened to me. The only thing that was still kind of bothering me was my abdominal muscles, but not badly.

Another attack like this occured a month later. Thank God though, because it was a little bit less intense. After that, my mom and I went to my pediatrician, and she told us that it was probably nothing, and if it happened again, she would give us a number of a gastrointernologist. It did not happen again.

After the first "attack", however, I began to experience abdominal pain. Placement-wise, its different from the "attacks", the pain is lower and kind of going across my belly-button region. These pains occur almost daily, and go on and off all day. They are sometimes occupanied by headaches and rarely dizziness.

In addition, I do not know if this is related or not, but I have not gotten a real period in a while. Some spotting here and there, but nothing really. I have not ever really been "regular" though.

Also, I my mom and I suspect that I may have had a yeast-infection recently. Again, I do not know if this could be related or not, but it came up during my research.

There is a possibility that I am lactose intolerant, but I am really looking for some good ideas as to what this is. Sometimes the pains get so bad that I cannot concentrate, and I have to leave school.

Please help me,
