Hi my daughter is 11 yrs old 12 in March, she has been complaining of headaches weekly and now this week she has been complaining of headaches with stomach pain to the point she is curled up in a ball. Any suggestions? Thank you for your time, M.J.

  • Sounds kind of similar to what my daughter is going through, except it's been 4 months for her of constant headache, stomach pain and vomiting 1-2 times a day. Any vomiting? Where abouts is her stomach pain? Any fever, diarrhea, constipation? We haven't had any luck with the doctors either, I'm sorry to say. They think it's all in her head and are reluctant to do further testing (I'm still pursuing this). We are also seeing a psychologist. I'm afraid I don't any answers for you, but wanted to let you know there are others out here going through the same or similar situation. Hope your daughter feels well soon. Cindy

  • Have you taken her to a pediatric cardiologist? I heard those can be signs (headache, stomach ache, and vomiting) of heart failure in children. Be persistent.
