"Just" stress?: Even stress needs care and attention, if this is what's happening with your daughter. You and her doctor need to gently ask about the pains and situations in which it arises. Things can happen that we'd never know about otherwise. Has she been hurt or injured? Please accompany her to her doctor for assessment and help with this. Good luck to you both. ...Read more

Although these symptoms are often associated with pregnancy, they are very nonspecific, and some, such as headaches and stuffiness, generally don't occur early in the pregnancy. Symptoms of abd/pelvic pain could = an abnormal pregnancy, so if your preg test is +, see a doctor. ...Read more
