I just wanted to say hang in there. And, keep insisting on testing until you figure out the problem. My daughter was diagnosed with Celiac at 2.5. She had been sick her entire life - vomiting blood, low weight gain, failure to thrive, reflux... on Prevacid and every time we tried to wean her off of it, she would start vomiting within two weeks. I fired one GI doc who said she was normal and went looking for the best I could find within an hour's drive. Even at that, she had been scoped twice and had various other tests with no diagnosis. We were at our wit's end... we KNEW that this was not "normal" so I kept pushing. Finally, on her third scope, she came up with Celiac. She had been gluten-free for only a week when she said "mommy, my tummy not hurt anymore" It broke my heart. Poor little girl didn't know life without pain. I knew we had our answer. Took her off Prevacid, weight gain was back on the charts, no more vomiting (even when she gets a bug, it's minimal now). Her Celiac panels are all normal now and we are down to once a year at the GI. I don't know if that is your daughter's issue or not, but my story is simply to say - keep looking. It took me two and a half years of insisting something wasn't right, but it was so worth it to have our answer and have our daughter healthy.
