Tummy ache

by Mary
(Cork)

My 10 year old daughter has SPD, she is constantly in and out of hospital with stomach pains, she gets impacted on a regular basis. Has anyone else came across this symptom of SPD?


It is really stressful with her continuously saying her belly hurts, I got to work only to get a call to come to the school to collect her. This could happen many times in the week.

Has anyone found any suitable treatments for it, she has been in for all tests to confirm there is nothing else going on, all tests were normal.

She did have a lot of wind when she was a baby and was allergic to every formula except Glactomin 17.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Mary

tummy aches
by: Whitney

My 8 year old daughter was complaining about belly aches. Usually in morning and evening and occasionally afternoon. She was still active so I was not concerned about it at first but it was becoming more frequent. We have started her on a dietary supplement that someone had suggested. The probiotic pearls worked with her stomach aches.

stomach/head/neck aches
by: Anonymous

my son just turned 6 and will comment about stomach aches as well as head aches..and occasionally say his neck hurts. we were confused by this...the stomach stuff was very infrequent (but at times had him sobbing and say he couldn't walk), we had his eyes checked out and there were no problems so we crossed that off the head ache list...and so we have just decided that these side effects are caused by his anxiety and getting worked up.

your child being hospitalized might be a different story altogether, but i think they internalize their feelings and it causes them to have these certain pains.

tummy ache
by: Alyson

Hi,

I have 4 kids. all with various degrees of SPD. Whilst child no 2 had his difficulties put down to anxiety the doc's did look at his weak bladder, which is when we found out more about his bowel problems. He has been given a powder called "Movicol" and this has worked really well.

I don't think the bowel problems are all about how active child is, as this son is really active. However lots of SPD kids self restrict their diets, which may not help.

GOOD LUCK and hope it all gets sorted

I'm curious, too

My 2 1/2 yo is currently being evaluated for SIPD. She has recently started complaining about stomach aches. I have started to wonder if she is digesting more non-edible things than I am aware. She eats paper, cardboard, erasers etc... surely this can't be good for her digestive system. Is it possible that your daughter is doing the same and it's creating stomach problems for her?

Gluten Intolerant?
by: Don Forde

Perhaps she is gluten intolerant. Have her tested for this.

try digestive enzymes
by: Anonymous

have you considered digestive enzymes? They can't hurt, and almost certainly would help. Google Houston Neutraceuticals. This guy developed an enzyme formula that has worked with hundreds of kids on the autism spectrum. I have used them for my child and myself. Good Luck!

I have serviced a few children with similar issues (I service 3-5 year range). The less active the child the more likely this may happen. I have shown my parents ways to massage the lower back in a downward fashion to assist with relaxing these muscle-ask your OT or PT to show you. Drinking enough water and being active may help.
