Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Hello & welcome to Just Answer! If you have any questions after reading my answer, be sure to let me know.
This is certainly a symptom that concerns me,
I would be concerned about infestation with worms like Giardia, since this can cause pain, with mild diarrhea
Also sometimes acidity / reflux can lead to night time abdomen pain, that will be worsened by Ibuprofen
even stomach infections or inflammation in the gut can cause this problem,
and Urinary tract infection is an often missed cause in girls for abdo pain,
I tried the Ibprofen in the morning before school, just one time
Given that 3 weeks have passed, she certainly requires an early pediatric evaluation
UTI...she is not having any problem going potty
A stool examination, urine examination and further tests as per the examination and reports will help find the cause of her symptoms
I understand that there are no symptoms
but believe me, we have seen many cases of low grade UTI in girls her age,
Of course, further tests and examination will confirm the diagnosis
should we see a pediatrician or a stomach specialist?
I would not be keen on using any OTC medicines without meeting the pediatrician, since 3 weeks have already passed,
referral as needed
