Any idea what this could be?
Dd (6) has been mostly lying on the couch today because she has had stomach cramps. They definitely come in waves. She began complaining of stomach pain Thursday evening -- she often gets mild stomach issues. (I suspect some dairy intolerance, but just when I was going to remove all dairy this fall, she went 4 months without complaining at all about stomach issues.)
She went to bed early on Thursday, seemed OK on Friday, but was complaining a bit last night. This morning she was complaining again, but eating and went to gymnastics, and walked home with me (20 minutes). She had lunch, but nothing after that and it seems to be getting worse. She feels a bit nauseous, but hasn't thrown up. She has no fever. Her lower abdomen is tender when we press on it, but it doesn't cause great pain, just discomfort.
It's a bit hard to know how serious to take her lying on the couch moaning, because she does that when she has a fever or a cold too. (She's very sensitive to pain.)
We can take her to the doctor tomorrow (with some juggling), but I'm not sure what they'll do. I'd rather wait until Monday when our regular pediatrician would be available.
