Hello,
I agree with your daughter's plan to go to the emergency room for further evaluation. Symptoms like those she is experiencing can be due to one of several potentially life-threatening problems. Blood work and a CT scan can usually find the answer. Pancreatitis, gall bladder infection, stomach ulcers are just a few of the possible diagnoses.
Good luck,
Dr. Dan
