What treatment should be done to cure abdominal pain and nausea?

My daughter has had bad abdominal pain for 3 weeks. Can t eat, can t sleep and is nauseated. She was taken into the ER and they didn t see anything in her ultrasound. I m not sure what else to do for her. She was told her gallbladder is ok, her appendix is ok. We are not sure what else to do for her and how to get something done on getting her to feeling better.

Hi.

Noted the history about your daughter suffering from pain in abdomen and nausea for three weeks.
Ultrasonography is normal for gallbladder and appendix. Ultrasonography can miss on many disease as these can not be seen like colon, intestines.
Hence I would advise her the following:w
Send the stool and blood samples for tests.
If there is any evidence of an intestinal infection then a prescription based course may help a lot.
Add on antispasmodic and probiotic.
If there pain still persists and additional CT scan of abdomen and colonoscopy along with upper GI Endoscopy may be required.
Further management can be done as per the findings and thus get properly cured.
If all the investigations are normal then a possibility of IBS that is irritable bowel syndrome to be kept in mind and treated accordingly.
Also ask her to watch for the foods and beverages that cause problems and stop these altogether.

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

Hello,

As ultrasound abdomen is normal and she doesn't have any high-grade fever it shouldn't be bothersome.

Take the prescribed medications. Mostly such cases should be due to intestinal infections that are common in the young population and settle on its own.

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

Take care
