It is difficult to be sure about your daughter's problem, without being able to examine her.Her symptoms are not commonly encountered in children of her age. This is not due to growing pains.If she attends a play school and plays in a sand pit it is possible that she may have picked up a parasite called giardia which inhabits the duodenum and can cause abdominal pain in young children. A stool sample should be examined for this parasite-your paediatrician can arrange for this to be done.
