danni and doctors
Just when we thought Danni (my 14yo) was getting better ... she goes backwards ... so off to the specialist again. Apart from the the reflux, there is another problem ... so we had an MRI today. And I should warn you ... I am so up-to-date with gossip magazines !!! I know who's who, and who's doing what to who and viceversa !!!
The doctor did mention that she could be suffering from ... wait for it ... abdominal migraines. Yep. I googled it and there is such a thing! And believe it or not, she has all the symptoms ... but reading the information provided on the wonderful world wide web it is all becoming clearer ... the countless visits to doctors and emergency departments over the past few years and being told it was 'just a virus' or 'constipation' and even the appendicitis last year ... it all relates to these abdominal migraines. Can you believe it?
The specialist is ruling out all other possibilities before trying some medication to treat this condition ... but at the moment my poor baby is still suffering from the pain ... lets hope for some answers soon.
