My daughter is 11 years old. She has a stomach tic, spasm, movemment. It has been called many things by different doctors. I would like to believe the doctor but my daughter has also lost 27 lbs (Nov 07-Feb08). Since Feb, she has kind of leveled off with the weight, gaining or losing a pound or two here and there. The neurolgist say a tic would not affect appitete. She has had a lot of tests done through the GI department and they say she has nothing related to gastro stuff. She has been seeing a pscyhatrist since May, since her mood got really sad (not eating enough). They put her on Prozac and that has definately helped with her mood. I have also taken her to see a therapist and she thinks I should be looking at another hospital for medical reasons as she doesn't believe it is eating disorder. My daughter swears she is not trying to lose weight as well and that she just wants to be average weight. She doesn't pass up sweets or count calories either. Her current symptoms are stomach hurting, more when she eats and getting full quick. She doesn't eat much and I usually have to remind her to eat. She also has headaches and dizziness but I think that is from not eating/drinking enough. I am so worried the doctors are missing something as something is not right with my daughter. Any ideas from anyone would be great!!
