She has been having lower abdominal stomach pains on and off for about a month or so now but today it got really bad and had her in tears, She has been having what we like to call diva strops for quite some time now and is constantly pale with no colour to her cheeks. Her chest area I noticed has a lump under her left nipple she says this is to getting increasingly painful, she is only 10 could her period be getting close ?? She has also been suffering bad headaches and dizzy spells are these to signs of puberty i took her to the doctor but was told everything is fine !!!

11-13 is the average age to start your period, but a kid could start at young as 8/9 or not til 16+ and still be normal.



Bad headaches and dizzy spells would have me bringing her into the doctor for a full blood work up and MRI though.

I agree that it may sound like more than just period symptoms, but disagree that 10 is to young to start it.

Thankyou for your reply, I have just been on nhs Choices website and apparentely all the above I mentioned are very typical with girls going through puberty, I will however be taking her to see her gp so as to make sure nothing more severe is happening and I will not leave the room until I am happy with what I am told. Thankyou again for your reply.

Maybe take her to a OB/GYN. That sounds like something, but 10 is young to start her period IMO. Headaches, dizziness, stomach pains, and the lump under her nipple don't exactly sound like puberty to me.
