Hi. My daughter is in college. She has been complaining

Hi. My daughter is in college. She has been complaining of feeling nauseated for the past 4 days; she has thrown up three of the mornings. She also is having soft, yellowish stools, and she is complaining of back pain (which may be related or may be a flare up of her back pain from a year ago that after many tests and orthopedic appointments never had a definitive cause identified - chiropractic appointments did help a bit). My question is, should I tell her to get checked out at her infirmary or can she wait to come home Friday for an afternoon appointment with her doctor? I'm just not sure how urgent this is...but she has not felt better as the week has gone on and is throwing up in the mornings. Pepto Bismol helps and may be keeping her from vomiting in class. I told her to eat the BRAT diet to give her digestive track a rest. Thanks.

My daughter is 12 yrs old, almost 13. For about 5 days now she has been complaining of sudden tailbone pain , this pain came out of nowhere. She has had no injury or trauma to the area at all. It hurts her to sit (worse on hard chairs, such as the ones she must sit on at school all day!) and it even hurts when she sneezes, she says because the sneeze shakes her whole body & makes the pain in her tailbone very intense. Heat didn t help.. but ice seems to help a bit because it numbs the area, also she takes IB if the pain gets too bad. I m not sure what is going on with her or if I should be more concerned... does this require a Dr. visit? What could be the cause of sudden tailbone pain? She is fairly healthy... in the past she has struggled with joint pains of the knees mostly.. and also ALOT of back pain .. but they did tests & exams in the past & could never give me a reason why she was experiencing back pain. Neither of those issues have been bothering her lately though. She does tire easily with physical activity.. and she has to do alot of running in gym.. which can be hard on her because she starts to feel like her lungs are on fire & she fears collapsing. I ve had her tested for asthma & the Dr. says she doesn t have it. So... any idea? Are any of these symptoms related? Also, she had shingles at age 9... very young to have... & I know that seems kindof random to mention... but I wanted to include as many details about her history as possible, just in case the right Dr/person reads this post & sees some sortof connection. Thank you for any help/answers!

Hi, lately my five-year-old daughter frequently complains about feeling sick and as though she needs to throw up. However, her temperature is always normal, she eats well (and a wide variety of foods) and is of slim build and active physically. She usually complains of feeling pukey towards bedtime or in the morning. Is this common among children this age, and is it likely to be physical or psychological?
