Brief Answer: could be worms or irritable bowel Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writingto health care magic. The symptoms described by you fit more towards worms infestation esp Giardia or irritable bowel. Try deworming her . I usually prescribe albendazole 200mg one dose only every 6 months for deworming. Try probiotics like sachharomyces which could help her. If symptoms persist she will need complete evaluation including stools and urine tests. Regards Dr Arun
