High temperature. Does not eat much. Why does her stomach pain?

My 5 year old daughter has had a high temp (39) on and off for the past 6 weeks (went to docs 3 weeks ago and was told it was viral) but keeps complaining of a stomach pain. I ve tried touching her stomach but she says it hurts, then picks up again and Ok for a few hours till the next bout of pain. She s also sleeping more, not eating much, but then she s not the best eater going. Should I go back to my doctors, I m fed up of going and being made to feel I m wasting their time.Thanks.

Thank you for the query.

Yes, you definitely should visit your doctor once again. Fever for so long time can be a symptom of serious disease. She may suffer from urinary tract infection, some abdominal infection or even a leukemia. She should have blood work, urine analysis and abdominal ultrasound at first. Her lungs should be checked and all lymph nodes.
Please do not wait any longer.

Hope this will help.
