Stomach problems?

      Just wondering if anyone else suffers from severe stomach problems during a relapse. It seems that is what is going on with Emily. I’m thinking that her stomach muscles are affected right now & it’s causing her to become constipated. She got a bad stomach ache tonight & I sat with her in the bathroom and encouraged her to go. It seemed like the pain let up once she was able to move her bowels.

      It’s so hard to assess what is really going on because she’s only a child and can’t describe things like an adult would. She just knows that her stomach hurts & that’s all that matters. She’s been getting very frustrated with me because I don’t know what to do. Any help would be great on this.

      If you do have this problem what do you do about it? Emi’s nurse suggested giving her a stool softener tomorrow.
