Hi there, that surely sounds odd. I don't want to paint the devil on the wall nor worry you, but does the pain always occur in the same area? If so I suggest you get it checked out by a doctor, as this sounds a lot like bone cancer in early stage. although this disease is highly unlikely to hit people under the age of 40, there are rare cases. I doubt your daughter would have it, but I thought I'd let you know anyways - again not to worry you, but maybe to allow for you to become more aware. I suggest you google an X-Ray of bone cancer and then you'll see what I mean. I hope your daughter is fine and it's gonna go away!!! All the best and have a wonderful day! xxx
#22: That's true, but at her age it makes more sense if she would be talking about her stomach when she says "pointy carrots", as if she had swallowed them and they're poking her from the inside. My son has made similar comments about food. We definitely need an update on this one, OP needs to clarify a few things. (Also, my *previous comment was made for #21.)
Kids at age 11 are still pretty prone to flights of fancy. Also, if the school system is anything like it was 10 years ago, they probably haven't covered shit about in depth anatomy and still rely on "The Magic School Bus" for most biology info.
Could be growing pains too. Best to just have her seen by her pediatrician. Hope she's alright.
If not period cramps, take her to a doctor. Wait a while to see if she gets her period, but if the pain worsens at all, IMMEDIATELY take it seriously. Whether SHE believes it's "pointy carrots", bugs eating her from the inside out, or something entirely logical, you need to take it seriously. Something similar happened to me when I was younger, I wasn't taken seriously, and my appendix burst. I nearly died because adults thought it was my period or I was exaggerating. Please have her seen by a professional.
11 is still pretty young. She's just trying to figure things out. If you haven't already, now is a good time for The Girl Talk. Just explain what's happening and problem resolved
you should take both of those very seriously. especially the one about the carrots. at best she's making it up or is really gullible at worst she could have a mental illness. when I was 13 I had severe pain in my stomach thankfully my parents believed me and the mass was removed, took the doctors a week to find it though.
