    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Tummy troubles?
    An_249332 posted:
    Pretty much every day for over a year now, my two-year-old daughter pulls her legs up to her chest and just shakes. She'll do this at least once a day (although some days it's several times) and it last for several minutes (sometimes over 10 min). My pediatrician insists it's gas. I'm not convinced. His partner ran bloodwork and it all came back fine. Lately she points to her chest and says that's the part that hurts. She clenches her body up so tightly and breaks out into a sweat it has me really concerned. Any thoughts? Or any conditions it might be symptomatic of?
    MrsJordanSmith3 responded:
    Does she do it after she has been running around playing? After she eats? Prior to a BM?
    An_249332 replied to MrsJordanSmith3's response:
    Sometimes, but she'll also do it in her sleep and just randomly while in the middle of reading a book or something. Lately she's been doing it more often. I've given her mylecon for gas but it has no effect.
    cindy2boys responded:
    is she pooping regular? if her poop is to hard, then it may be some gas along with heartburn.
