I assume your husband is her father, he needs to call to the child's pediatrician and find out. You may not have acces to her records, he does. I would be more concerned with how much the child was getting in fluids during this time. I have taken my daughter for IV fluids when she has been this sick. There are supositories to stop the vomiting. There is all this flu going around. I would be shocked if the child was just told it's a virus if the symptoms are as she explained. Good luck

I would suggest taking her to the doctor or hospital yourself. If she is still in that much pain, it could be that her mother isn't paying attention or that (and this is just from the way it sounds) that she could be being abused. If you feel that her health is compromised, take action! When kids are that young you shouldn't ignore diesease and wait for it to go away.

I would say the symptoms are to nebulous for any sort of diagnoses. Is there fever? Congestion? Rash? Stomach issues? Acid reflux? Allergy to certain foods? Puking and a pain in the pubic bone doesn't mean much. She could have a lousy mattress to sleep on or bone cancer.

thanks for all of ur replies.. that was what we were concerned about because we dont have any rights to takin her to the doctor or calling! all we know is what were told!!! and we are trying to give her suggestions to ask the doc. because this is serious and feel like the mother is just goin with whatever they say!! which they are doctors... but they oversee things sometimes too!!! does anyone knw if this is a sign of heptitias or any other kind of diesease like that, that needs to be tested for??

  This is not normal. Watch for dehydration and being lethargic. If you are feel she is not being treated take her to a different ER.  My grandaughter was taken to ER 3 times befor they realized she had pneumonia. Make them find out what the problem is.....
