My daughter is 15, she has had ME/CFS now for 6 years. Gastro problems have always been a big part of her symptoms (stomach pain, lack of appetite, nausea, diarrhoea/cramps IBS type). She's got swallowing problems (waiting for a Paediatric SALT appointment) and she will have a Calprotectin test when that arrives to rule out IBD, if anything turns up then she'll be referred on to a Gastro. Heliocobacter Pylori has been ruled out Unfortunately all this has meant referral to a Paediatrician again who thinks that the symptoms are all ME/CFS (they never use the term ME) related. He also has referred her to a child psychologist as the symptoms are similar to those with anxiety. The Paediatric team at the hospital haven't been very good to say the least in the past, this Paediatrician does have a slightly better idea of CFS but still runs with the ideas of GET and psychology. She's been prescribed omeprazole which has never worked in the past or ranitidine. He prescribed Buscopan when I mentioned it for stomach cramps, he did say there was no medicine and that symptoms would improve when the condition improves. These symptoms have waxed and waned in the past but recently not abating much. She's always low during Winter months so I'm hoping as we head into Spring she'll improve. Head bangingly frustrating that the finger always ends up pointing to the head. One reason was even put down by her CFS physiotherapist to anxiety about homework. Ugh!!! Everytime we're lead to the path of these Paediatricians I always feel my daughter is in danger but left with little choice as Paediatric SALT need a referral from one and not GP. I'm glad the diarrhoea is being taken seriously enough to warrant further testing but not impressed with the thoughts about anxiety.
