Chronic pain in stomach. MRI said distended stomach. What does this mean?

Hi, my 12 year old daughter is having chronic pain in the middle of her stomach . She says that is feels like someone is ripping her stomach apart. She also has pain very suddenly that can last for a few minutes. This has been going on for over 5 months and all reports so far a normal. Her last MRI and SCAN where 1 month after she had the pain. Her stomach is distended. No pain medicine is helping. Any ideas what is wrong

Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at HCM!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

The differentials in an abdominal case are too many.
Could you please mention all the tests and results, her symptoms in details?
Does she have fever, nausea, heartburn, sour eructations? Are bowel habits normal?
I can answer better on getting such additional data.

I would be glad to answer any further queries.

Thank you and Good luck!
