apparently,she also gets quite alot of headaches aswell.
she's going through quite a stressful time with the transition from primary to secondary so i've tried to put things into perspective and have put the pains down to i'm starting to get more concerned.apparently,the pain is linked to both "back and front toilets" if you get my drift and also she feels like there's "a pin"between the back and front also every now and again....???is this just a sign of puberty or should i be seeing a doctor at this stage?

I wouldnt hesitate in taking my child to the doctor anyway.....even if its just for reassurance.

Is she having diahorrea? If her bowel habits have changed, even on some days but not others, that might be something that would cause pain. I would see the doctor, yes.

Has she started her periods?

Go to the doc, just to be sure.

Abdominal pain can be the appendix. Best to take her to the GP. You will both feel much better!

Could she have a water infection? you can get headaches with those too.
