Stomach and throat pain, food comes back to the throat, normal tests, no relief with giving lactose milk. What can be done?

Hi, My daughter complains that her stomach hurts & throat . I can tell that it s her drink or food that comes back up which causes the pain in her throat. I have taken her to a stomach specialist, they did a camera down her throat & checked the acid reflux to see how aften but all came back normal. Still my daughter has pain. I took her off regular milk & have been giving her Lactose milk which helped for several months but now the symptoms are creeping back up. Who should I see ?

General Surgeon 's  Response

As per my surgical experience, the issue with the stomach of your daughter sounds to be related to digestive enzyme disturbances with stomach upset.

Digestive enzymes with probiotics help a lot.

Additionally GI infection must be ruled out with a battery of lab reports.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
