Hello Mrs. Barnett, Sorry about this illness with her.
She could be having migraine for which assessment by pediatrician or pediatric neurologist may be required. She meanwhile may be tried on small frequent meals and some antacid like gelucil with each meal.
Allergy may be a possibility and can be ascertained by an elimination diet, removing one item at a time for few days to a week.
Did she have any jaundice recently? That could have virus liver etiology.
thank you so much, i did wonder if migraine maybe the case as my father suffered with migraines. thank you so much. meryl XXXXXXX
