Our daughter is currently 11 years old. At the age of 8, almost 9 she had fractured several bones, within months. We had noticed a huge amount of growth and was somewhat alarmed, but were waiting out our next well child visit. On our 3rd visit to radiology, the radiologist noticed our name... again and called us back. Told us that her "bone age" was not in proportion. Her bone age was about 13, and she was then 8 and 3 months shy of 9. She did have some breast development. Her blood work came back with her estrogen level being "significantly high". We were sent to a endocrinologist who then said she had precocious puberty and suggested Lupron injections monthly. In October 2008, she is 11 at this point, she started having a significant amount of headaches. They became daily so at a sick appt I asked her pediatrician if he thought she should still be on Lupron. He then confered with the endocrinologist and it was decided that we should stop.
The headaches have not only gotten worse, they are to the point she cannot sleep at night very well and she is sick at her stomach. She is exhausted and is catching every cold and flu that flies by her face. We are just at a loss as to what is wrong but know that it is not normal nor can she keep functioning like this. If you have any ideas or suggestions we really could use them. Thank you.
