How old is she?

You seem to be having trouble with the chat paula.Please tell me her symptoms
iam sorry iam not good with computers, the pain is just under her ribs right down to her lower stomach all the time and it doesn't matter what she eats its still the same
Okay.Have they scoped her?Tested her gall bladder and for celiac?Also, has a secondary cause like missing school been investigated?
they have tested her for celiac but not gall bladder, and yes i work with the teachers and my doctor to try and get school work done at home if she is not well enough for school
Okay.The gall bladder should be tested.And she needs an endoscopy as well if this hasn't been done.Finally what meds has she tried?
endep and just panadol and she has had a endoscopy
Okay. Make sure to get that gall bladder checked.Also, if nothing comes up this could be severe irritable bowel.In that case, instead of endep I recommend a drug call dicyclomine.It works much better in this case.Please don’t click “bad” or “poor” service as this leaves negative feedback for me.
