Concerned, I can’t tell you what the problem is without examining her first, but I can tell you that you should have it looked at. It might just be recurrent abdominal pain syndrome, but you should have your doctor make sure there is nothing the matter. If you’re interested in more information on RAP (recurrent abdominal pain syndrome), you can mail me at Good luck.
