My daughter is 14 and complains of stomach aches a lot, and gets the chills and shakes but no fever. She also complains of her throat hurting and also headaches. She has missed a lot of school. I am going to take her to a Gastro pediatrician but was wondering if anyone else is going through the same thing with their teenager.

My daughter had similar issues. Body aches, headaches, shaking, legs like jelly. We figured out that it was always right before her period or at the beginning of it. Took her to the doctor, who sent her to the Gynecologist. All it has taken to help is 2 ibuprofen beginning a couple of days prior to her period, through her period. If it is all the time, take her to the Dr, but if you can track it to her period, try that. She also gets headaches a lot other times too. She had more frequent headaches and stomach aches previously and then I found out she was being severely bullied for over a year (I think that was nerves and trying to get out of going to school).

No my daughter is never off her food. She does have trouble sleeping at times but I don't see it as an issue.

Yes my 14 year old also complains of headaches feeling sick and sore throats. Sometimes I make her go to school because I don't think it is as serious as she says. She usually makes it through the day at school so maybe it is a behavior she needs to get over.
