Hmmmm sounds a bit odd that she is still doing it. My dd is 7 and if she didn't get that much attention at the first go, then she'd give up.
Plus does she normally enjoy Brownies ?? Wouldn't have thought she would have wanted to miss that, school yes but not brownies .
At my local middle school there has been a bug/virus type thing doing the rounds. Tummy cramps are the only symptom, nothing else doesn't lead to the trots/throwing up or anything. My friend's dd has had it on/off for about 3 weeks.
lol rickman - no suggestions as yet though - wonder if it has to do with the break-up though - maybe a bit of a delayed reaction? Or just the relationship (if you could call it that) as it stands between you and xp.
Sometimes you have to wait ages with the on call docs though despite having an appt.
Think she probably isn't likely to say outright if she's feeling it a bit re you and xp - I know ds1 (same age) often doesn't say things I know he's feeling even if I ask him. Sometimes you have to read between the lines and handle them accordingly I guess - just doing your best to make sure they're ok - which you are.
There do seem to be bugs going round that have no symptoms other than pain/cramps.
One other option that springs to mind is that it could be psychosomatic. When I was young I suffered continually with stomach aches for which the doctors could find no physical cause. They said I was naughty and I was faking, but to me the pain was real. I hated school, and had really problems throughout my time there. Later I suffered from depression (from age 11) and stopped going to school.
I don't know if it could be anything similar with your dd, or even if all this could be any use to you at all - if it was, I'm not sure how you'd go about determining whether that was the cause or not.
hopefully doc will be able to tell you what prob is.
I too was thinking that it could be an emotional problem becoming a physical one.
how was she at xp? could you ask the school how she's doing, sometimes schools may forget to inform you that complained of pain.
