My 8 year old daughter has been complaining of tummy pains in the morning and now at night as well. During the day, she has no symptoms. At first, I thought it might be nerves from starting a new school, but now I'm not so sure. Has anyone else experianced anything like this before?

Some in my family have, turned out to be diet related - gluten

Stress is also a solid idea

Write down what she eats and when she complains of pain ... track it for a time - note of she seems stressed in any other way

Any other symptoms? Note where exactly her stomach hurts, upper, lower, left side, right side

Alert the doc you are dealing with this and tracking it for a time

Where in her abdomen is she complaining of pain and does she have a fever?
