It is not necessary for a gastroscopy. It is the chronic post nasal mucous drip resulting from the sinusitis that causes your child to feel nauseous and have a stomach ache. This is usually especially bad in the mornings.Please get an opinion from an ENT specialist so that your child's sinusitis can be properly treated.
