  • I am not a doctor but I would have them do an MRI on her apendix (forgive my mispelling) and also a white blood cell count. I would also request they do a culture for a bactrial infection, (forgive my mispelling) amenthian bactrien. I am not sure if that is how it is spelled, but it can be picked up on the skin. Usally only children or people with weekend immune systems get it but it is very resistant to antibotics. Usally they have a fever with this. If she isn't running a fever, could be a imbalance in her intestines. Try giving her a shot of cola soda,

  • How old is your daughter and what are the foods she is eating? They should definitely do more tests - blood and stool cultures would be important...check for bacteria and parasites.A very good food therapy is to take 1 cup brown rice and 5 cups water and slowly cook for 5-8 hours...this makes a rice congee which is very nutritious and easily digested. Add fresh ginger for nausea. Also, try looking for a naturopath or acupuncturist in your area. Go to www.acufinder.com and punch in your zip code.Best of luck to you.Ann
