Saturday, Sunday and Monday was fine only Monday night she had vomitting again and the pain returned. She has no fever bad she had vomitting once more, she is comlpaining about a pain in her belly that comes and go a pain at the back of her knees. She doesn't eat anything, she looks very tired and she sleeps many hours a day and all night. The doctor today said is not very serious but i am very concerned. Its the first time i see my daughtet so tired and sleeppy. Please doctor help me. Thank you very much
I suspect, like your doctor, that this is a virus illness. If so, she needs fluids and time. If the pain is progressively worsening, then she needs to be re-examined carefully by your doctor and some additional tests may need to be done, depending on how she looks.
Good luck, Dr. Olson
