Apparently she was off colour all day yesterday (at her dads) and complaining of tummy ache.

Her dad texts to give me the 'heads up' that he thinks it might be 'the start of something hormonal'.

She didn't go to school today.
Was complaing of tummy ache (in a band across her tummy at belly button height (so not likely to be cramping)). Says it feels like a thump rather than pointy and stabby.
Complaining of headache
Intermittently says shes hot and sweaty, but no fever.

Any suggestions? She is normally fit and well and rarely complains of tummy ache.

She did used to suffer mesenteric adenititis but not been affected for a whike. I wondered if it this recurring, triggered by stress (exam week), and that her dad sitting down and doing the puberty talk has made her more anxious.
