My daughter had a stradle injury in July of 2008. Since this injury she has been experiencing diarrhea everyday with abdominal pain and headaches.
She has been to see doctor after doctor to find out what is going on without any real answers. She had a abdominal ultra sound done which found free fluid in her pelvis. The very same day she had a enhanced CT done of her abdomen and pelvis which also found a suspicious enchancing of the fluid in her abdomen. (what ever that means have gotten no answers) The report stated that there were no concerns about extravasaton from collecting system and thought that her symptoms were more likely due to a GI process. She has had stool samples done which came back negative (negative for what I don't know). She has been to the Adolescent clinic at CHP without any findings. Those people seemed irritated that I was told to bring her there when she hasn't even started her period. She went to the GI doctor who did 1 blood test and stated that if this test came back negative to stop dairy products for 2 weeks. Well, the test came back negative and we stopped dairy products for 2 weeks but the diarrhea, abdominal pain and headaches still persisted. We were then told to take her to see a Child Behavioral Counselor that most likely she was having anxiety. I am so fed up with all the run around that I have been getting. It has been 7 months now and she is still experiencing diarrhea everyday, headaches everyday, and abdominal pain everyday. She is confused because she does not want to feel like this anymore and she is getting very depressed. She has been seeing the Child Behavioral counselor now for almost 2 months and nothing has changed. She does not want to go to school in fear that she may have a accident and her headaches have gotten worse. We even took her to the eye doctor who prescribed her glasses only for reading but the headaches are still there if not more now. The abdominal pain that she is experiencing is located on her left side just below her ribs and she states that the pain is a very sharp pain. Her PCP stated once again that she probably has a intestinal viral infection and it just needs to run it's course. Well, I think 7 months is long enough to run it's course. Someone please help I am at my wits end.
