Acid Reflux in 7 year oldHi i have been dealing with my daughters 7 years old acid reflux since she was a baby. When she was a baby she would drink her bottle and turn blue. When we took her in to the doctors and did testing she was diagnosed with GERD. She never visibly vomited. Now that she is older, her symptoms are as follows, severe abdominal pain in the middle above the belly button. Occasionally she throws up in her mouth. Severe dark circles under her eyes. She has been for EGD and colonoscopy and everything was normal. She was put on a medication for gerd I think prilosec i would have to double check that but it made her stomach pain excruciating where she would cry. So we stopped. We tried to write down foods hoping that it was certain foods. Then the doctor stated that it may be emotional. We thought maybe school but then it happened when we were on vacation too. We usually give her tums when this occurs with some success and we give her acidophilus tabs daily and give her miralax in case she is constipated. Her appetite is large and she is always wanting to eat. She says that the pain never completely goes away but it's not that bad sometimes. She is anxious at times and has night terrors which relaxation techniques have worked but we need to figure out if there is something we can do to fix her stomach issues that are occasionally really severe. Please help I thought i would try the nat phos x6 1 tab twice daily and see where she is.????
