Doctor gave her medicine to reduce acid in her tummy as thought maybe it was the problem as 2 weeks previously had a viral . had blood tests done only one showing abnormal was est inflammation . pain eased for about 1 week then last night fell on her bottom on floor and immediately curdled over in pain again this time with slight pain when breathing .what could this be why did it look like she getting better then a fall irritated it again ?
If your Doctor has checked for the things they normally check for, blockage, structural problems and infection and ruled those out then go to a qualified, registered, experienced and insured nutritional therapist.
They may reccommend a comprehensive stool test from a reputable laboratory such as GDX will check for causes of inflamation such as infection, infestation, intolerance and the balance of good and bad bacteria.
Meanwhile keep a food diary and see if there are particular foods that agrevate it more than others - generally antacids will make most problems worse in the longrun
