Child having dry heaving, constipation. What is the cause?

My child is 10 years old, about 100 lbs and has been experiencing dry heaving for about a week, she was constipated too but that has been resolved but the dry heaving won t stop. The doctors have no clue what is wrong with her and say to just keep her hydrated but a week seems too long for her still to be dry heaving. Do you know what is causing this?
