Painful vagina and anus in child, clenching knees and back pain. What is wrong?

Hello, last night my daughter woke me at 1am screaming about a pain in both her vagina and anus . She was writing in pain, clenching her knees together, arching her back. I thought it was worms and tried to look but she wouldn t stay still long enough for me to look. The pains came and went but they were obviously severe. I googled it and came across a link or parents experiencing the same thing with their daughters. Plenty had been to a doctor but as far as I could see noone had been given a diagnosis ( WWW.WWWW.WW . Hope you might be able to help with one. Many thanks, K.

Hi,
Thank you for your query,
This screaming types of pain may be due to intestinal colic, burning micturition due to a urinary tract infection or may be due to a night mare or night terrors.
It needs proper evaluation taking the sequence history, evaluating with appropriate investigations like CUE analyzing her sleep patterns.
Consult your Pediatrician for proper evaluation.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Pain in the anus or vagina can be due to a variety of reasons and your daughter first needs a physical examination and assessment in order to find out the cause of her symptoms. It is not possible to arrive at a diagnosis without a clinical diagnosis, and I would not like to confuse or scare you with a whole list of possibilities.

It is unwise to come to a conclusion that the diagnosis can't be made, without even seeing a doctor, and just by reading a few online experiences of others. Since you say that her symptoms were severe and recurrent, please take her to a doctor for a proper examination and further investigations, if necessary.

Wish you all the best.

Regards,
