My daughter has been in and out of the hospital for the last 16 days. She has had severe abdominal pain- for 15 days on the right side and then in the ER the other day it switched to left side- same type of pain and same place. It's a diagnol pain running top to bottom (near belly button). We have ruled out the following:

1. Chron's
2. Celiac
3. Apendicitus
4. Kidney Stones
5. Gallbladder
6. Overaries

She has not started menstral cycle yet. She is being treated now for constipation, stomach ulcer and now anxiety disorder- and the pain has not gone away. She poops daily. Tylenol is given to help with pain and it now burns when she takes it. Motrin and Tylenol did not seem to work at all- it just brought pain level down from a 8/10 level to and 4/5 level.

Docs have NOT done colonoscopy or Esophogus scope. Today they are doing a stool sample.

Please help. This has been constant pain to the point of missing school for the last 17 days. It started on October 28th and was strong with nausea but was manageable until the 1st of November.

We need any suggestions or answers we can get.
