What could cause my 14 yo daughter to have abdominal cramping, bloating & nausea as well as joint and radiating neck pain after menstrual cycle?

What could cause my 14 yo daughter to have abdominal cramping, bloating & nausea as well as joint and radiating neck pain after menstrual cycle?

Maybe not related: I think maybe the joint and neck pain are not related to just having the period but may be something else. The neck and joint pain could be a virus but could also be serious,especially if there is a fever or rash going on.

I have a nervous feeling in the pit of my stomach, hr 115, sweating, off/on tingling in left side of arm/neck, amd bloating--possible heart attack?

Not likely: A heart attack is always possible, but given your age, medical history and symptoms is highly unlikely. Alternate conditions, such as panic attack, given your history of anxiety or hypoglycemia, for example, in the right clinical context are much more likely. Talk to your doc about your symptoms. ...Read more

Give them time: Your family member is in the right setting. In the hospital numerous tests can be run in a relatively short time compared to the out patient setting. The list of possible diagnoses is extensive and a detailed history and physical exam as well as diagnostic testing will at least rule out the most common and serious concerns. Give them time and if no answer is found, get her primary care MD involved ...Read more
