My latest instagram (follow @ melandboys)...deciphering a clue for a treasure hunt for Family Home Evening.
Thanks to Grammy for the kit and to Connor for setting it up.
Such a fun time.
Ok now for my request... calling all Dr Moms out there...
My 10 year old has had abdominal pain since December, no joke. He has lost about 5 pounds since then, which is just not good for a growing boy! He is definitely suffering from some sort of indigestion, gas, and heart burn,,,,but why?! I have taken him to the Dr lots of times. We have done an xray, ultrasound, blood work and can find no answers. Everything came back fine except the xray done at a walk in clinic showed gas. That is when I took him into our pediatrician.
He is currently taking Prevacid and a probiotic for the last 2 weeks with not much relief. He will seem somewhat better one day, but worse the next. It never goes away though. So strange, huh?!
I am currently trying to get in to see a GI specialists, but in the mean time I am looking for answers myself.
He is miserable today and it makes me sad:(
Has anyone out there had a child go through something like this? Could it be a food allergy?
I have been limiting foods that are obviously bad for heartburn, but it really is challenging to monitor a 10 years olds eating, you know?!
Any ideas for me?
Thank you my dears!!
