Recurrent epigastric belly pain, vomiting. Suggest remedy

My seven year old has recurrent epigastric belly pain for many months. It is random and I cannot tell if related to food. It seems to be getting worse and more in the morning and at night before bed. After a car trip tonight, she woke up and vomited undigested food then went back to sleep. I am beside myself with worry.

Hi welcome to Healthcare magic forum.
Thanks for asking a question to H.C.M.Forum.
Your 7 year old daughter is suffering with epigastric pain of abdomen, more in the morning and night before bed.
It appears to be due to indigestion due to new foods, gastric irritation due to more spicy foods, worms in the intestines, or urinary tract infection, rarely may be due to lactose intolarance. etc.
I advise you to consult a pediatric specialist for diagnosis and treatment, you may need to get the stools examination for reducing substances, or cysts and ova.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.

Hi ! One of the most common cause of recurrent and chronic pain in abdomen in this age group is worm infestation. So go for a stool test and deworm your child if advised by your family physician.
Next a urine test may also be helpful. Morning increase in the pain abdomen could also be due to hyper acidity due to ingestion of spicy and fast food. Too much of aerated soft drinks could also be the culprit. So remove these causes if these are present. Vomiting after the car trip could be due to coincidental motion sickness which will mostly subside by itself. However, food poisoning due to ingestion of different food on the way during the journey has to be ruled out . If the things do not improve, you may have to consult your paediatrician for help. Take care.
