I am stressed and my anxiety is going nuts. I am having trouble with my little girl. Back before christmas she had a tummy ach that wouldnt go away due to some meds she was on. Well we got that taken care and now she is so afriad togo to school cause her tummy might start hurting. She began worrying yesterday morning over having to go to school and that her tummy MIGHT hurt while she is there. She is worrying so much it is makeing her tummy hurt. I have gotten calls from the school at lunch time cause she is crying and afriad to eat cause it might make her tummy hurt. I have tried talking her through this. telling her the more she worries the more her tummy will hurt. I even tried giving her a half  of pepto pill and telling her if her tummy hurts this will make it feel better but no. She tells me it wont help her. I am clueless now. I dont know what else to say or try and this morning I had to watch her walk into school with tears in her eyes due to fear of getting sick. I am stressed and advice would be great!

You have done good so far IMO
Maybe the next step should be taking her to a doctor............... is she constipated at all or the other way ??
Does her tummy only hurt if told she has to go away to school and /or eat
My Cait did this at first in pre K as she didnt want to leave my side
Ask the school if they can give her a mat to lay about on for a few minutes if she complains of this
Have her eat small portions and maybe even some play acting on your part might work
Like " mommy has a sore tummy today I am going to take a half of one of these ( pepto) and it says it will CLEAR it up in 20 minutes to a half hour and it will help for DAYS and DAYS lol
** point out time to her** Then tell her that it must be working cuz mommy feels soooooooo much better.............and maybe that will help ** MY Cait was/is a smart cookie lol and sometimes it didnt work but most times it did **
Just a thought
Also has she heard you c/o of not feeling good or having nausea and upset tummy?? that may also be it if she has
Kids are way to smart to pull anything over on but I would just suggest the the play acting thing with her lay down cuddle up and you both will HOPEFULLY .......Majicaly be all better.......

One other thought to is this if you have animals cats n dogs and with her in school pinworms are the easiest to catch they go thru the air and into hairs of nostrils and ingest inot kids bellies
I de worm Cait even now as a teen once every 6 moths and doc says it is the best thing to do it will cause upset tummy not wanting to eat or the other way gouging on food constantly
** I am not trying to scare you hun by no means just making sure I throw out a few ideas in hopes that one may help***
Please keep me posted on how she is doing okay

Thank you for the advice!
She was very constipated from the antis she was on for her strep throat. Thats is what started the tummy thing. She kept compliaing about her tummy so we went to the doc and they told me to give her some laxtives and then she was fine, But then she began to worry and worry that it would come back and she would worry so much that she would make herself sick. It had gotten to the point where she would cry everyday at lunch. No matter what I sent her for lunch she would barely touch it. The teachers would send her to the office and she would lay down and then by the time lunch was over she was fine and they would send her back to class. She says she still gets upset at lunch but not as much and they no longer send her to the office. ( I think they are just tired of dealing with her) And That TICKS ME OFF!
But it seems now she is less upset at lunch time but gets very upset in the morning about having to go at all. I hate the fact she is so worried. I cant stand to she my kids upset. The school is a good one but they forget sometimes that kids are kids and tough love is not always right for every kid.
Thank you for pointing out about the pinworms, I am going to check into that cause we do have alot of animals. A dog, goats, mini horse. Kinda like a mini farm around here. So I will check into it. Thank you!!
I always love your advice!
