Our daughter got a tummyache after consuming food. It started a year ago, and we simply thought: ignore it.
After four months we had an appointment with our GP, but as she grows, is good in sport - he was not too concerned and suggested to wait a bit. Perhaps she will grew out?
But in Novembre she had tummyache after every meal. On weekdays, on weekends, in holidays, when eating healthy as well when she ate pizza or something "unhealthy".
So I made an appointment with a specialist (we only got one gastroenterologist for kids, in the hospital. Here in Germany we normaly go to resident physician). He entered the room and my first thought was: oh, THATS what Santa does between christmas!
Today we had the second appointment (getting blood out of my daughters body was a bit of a challenge, not that SHE had a problem ... ) and it was another doctor. He send us straight to make an appointment for a fructose and lactose intolerance test.
So, next week we BOTH will be tested. They said, that often it runs in the family and they often test the parents as well.
I'm pretty happy, cause the waitinglist for good gastroenterologist - even for adults - are long.
