What could that be ?

Brief Answer: please refer to the following answer... Detailed Answer: Hi I read carefully all your child concerns and I am sorry for her situation. Based on the FGD-scopy, the problems consist in her stomach, and the causes might be: - pyloric stenosis (a narrowing of the passage from the stomach to small intestines) - gastroparesis (as the food was stucked in the stomach due to no movement of stomach) - possible complication of Rolandic seizures Could you please send in all the tests results? That could help assisting you further. Meanwhile, I'd suggest to - wait for the results of the biopsy, - give your daughter some pain-killers - let her rest more - give her more water and do not push her to eat Looking forward to have the results of the tests performed! Wish you health! Dr.Klerida

doctor1 MD friend has been waking with profuse sweating and vomiting in the middle of the night just out of the blue. Only medical condition at age 58 is high blood pressure , no complaint of pain. Possibly may have passed out this last time it happened. I thought possibly she is dehydrated or/and maybe a stomach lesion or pyloric Sphinger lesion , something digestive should be ckecked out. Or electrolyte imbalance can u suggest? Help?????
