Hi ! Good evening. I am Dr Shareef answering your query.

The symptoms of your daughter possibly points to a food poisoning which has caused the stomach pain, along with vaso-vagal symptoms. If I were your doctor, I would advise a routine stool test for ova and cyst, and treat accordingly. Apart from this, I would also advise a proton pump inhibitor, a anti spasmodic, and a probiotic. If she does not get relief out of this, and the same symptoms continue, I would advise her to get clinically assessed in the ER of a nearby hospital or your family physician.

I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your problem. Please do not hesitate to ask in case of any further doubts.
Thanks for choosing health care magic to clear doubts on your health problems. Wishing you an early recovery. Dr Shareef.
