My 16 year old daughter has had severe stomach pain for the last 2 months. She complains of severe pain at the point of her belly button. The pain litterly bends her over in pain. She has an extraordinary pain tolerance is normally very healthy.

She underwent a endoscopy which showed a mild hiatal hernia and reflux (which we knew of before and had been treating with nexium).

She is very athletic and her symptoms get worse with activity, running, jumping, etc...

Her blood work is normal. Her urine tests are all normal.

Does anyone have any ideas? The doctors are on a await and see mission, and I don't think she can handle much more of this. We've been to 2 doctors, and had 3 emergency room visits for this.
