I have a 7 years old daughter. For past one month she says there is a problem in chest.
The paediatrician initially gave ibrufen syrup and told that the pain could be due to the bones expanding near chest.
But she had the same problem. As a next step, we took X-ray and Ecg. X-ray was normal and ECG was normal with fast beat rate due to ECG fear.
The doctor told that there was no problem in heart.
Can you please advise about the existing pain which she has. If I ask about the pain she take a long breath and confirms about the pain. I am much worried about this though she is normal in her regular activites!!!
Since the X ray of the chest as well as the EKG is normal, conditions that can be worrying like pneumonia, bony lesions, and cardiac conditions have all been ruled out.
Hence there is no need to be anxious about them.
The other causes of pain could be musculoskeletal pain or due to acid reflux related pain.
Hence treatment with pain killers like Crocin or Ibuprofen syrup, as adviced by your doctor will help in musculoskeletal pain. You can also give her Gelusil MPS syrup, which is available over the counter, for acid reflux related pain.
In case, that is not helpful, you can consult with your doctor to rule out any rheumatological conditions.
