For about the past month and a half my 15 mo daughter has been vomiting in the middle of the night (not every night) and having diarrhea the days after she vomits. When it has been happening we immediately put her on the brat diet. This last time she was on the brat diet for 1 week and then we slowly reintroduced food. She was doing great for 2 weeks and then this past Saturday night she was vomiting in the middle of the night again. To be then followed up with diarrhea that she has had all week. I have been in constant contact with her pediatrician who now after this last episode has ordered a full work up on her. The first testing was a stooly study (which we have completed and the results were negative), the next study will be urine, then he wants an upper gi scope and then a cat scan. I want desperately to figure out what is going on with her, but I am worried about these invasive tests. Her dr has not once talked about allergy testing and from everything I am reading it sounds like this could also be an intolerance or something. We tried 2% milk with her at 12 months and within 2 days she was vomiting and crying in pain. We switched her to soy and we didn't have a problem up until a month and a half ago. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
