My daughter 12 yr old daughter has been complaining of stomach pain followed by vomiting for 45-50 days, very often. Initially she was given zifi 100 and metafel spas. Also conducted her abdominal USG which shows paramesentric lymph nodes in the right iliac fossa, no obvious omental thickening or collection. Other ESR, mt all test are negative. Now she has been given mox250, flagyl, omen 40mg, and mucaine gel for next 5 days.

Can you please let us know what is the reason behind this pain and vomiting ? Pl help. Regards, XXXXXXX

Thanks for your query.

I can feel your concerns
I would like to know
1. Is there any history of fever?
2. Sore throat?
3 . TB contact?
4. Pain on passing urine

Vomiting is due to an infective cause and decrease in electrolyte levels

I recommend to give her extra fluids , ORS (oral rehydration solution)
Repeat investigations after consulting your doctor.
Do get her renal function tests.

Hope this Will be helpful
Wishing her a speedy recovery

Thnx doctor.

There is no fever, sore throat. Did MT(skin test) for TB, chest x-ray-all reports were clear/negative. Kidney function test was normal.

Is this pain due to nodes formation, as reported in her USG??

Answered by Dr. Imraan Hussain 12 hours later

It's good to see that her investigations are normal. I Recommend to give her extra fluid and soft diet.

Yes, pain can be due to nodes and decrease potassium levels. Continue to give your daughter the prescribed medications and complete the treatment.

She should get back to normalcy soon. I wish her quick recovery.
