My daughter who is 8 years old has been complaining of her belly hurting really bad as well as sleeping a lot more than usual. Of course my husband and I are concerned she may be on her way to menstrating. She has no other symptoms either with the bellyache and Motrin seems to soothe the pain. She was diagnosed with precocious puberty a few years ago and she gets Lupron shots every 3 months, she was getting them every month. My question is should we be worried about the fact it could be her precocious pubert causing an to menstruated early, or am I too paranoid?

Well I think you should take your daughter to the doctor. Let the doctor examine her and then you and your husband could be free from the worries you have for your daughter.
