General & Family Physician Dr. Ramesh M.Vachharajani's  Response
Evaluation of your daughter's case requires immediate attention, you cant wait till September
take her to ER and get her investigated.
There is possibility of having some obstruction in G.I. tract or some spasm in pyloric sphincter causing this problem,or gastritis may be there.
ok and bye.
