Hi my 12 yr old daughter is having cyclic sickness bouts monthly she either gets up early hours of the morning or when she gets up normal time she gets pains in her tummy and is sick (bial) then she gets a headache and after a sleep is fine again this has happened for about 6 months now she has suffered with migraines in the past that has made her sick. She hasn't started her periods yet but is developing up top, she is type 1 diabetic. I took her to the doctors today who has prescribed her peptac liquid to be taken after food and before bed, is there anything she should or shouldn't eat before bed or anything she should or shouldn't drink before bed

Thank you for asking!
Abdominal pains in early mornings with menses and thelarche at iminence is mostly genitourinary in origin and it needs simple antispasmodics and rest. It is normal > Now the migraines you mentioned need diet and lifestyle modification with avoidance of triggers.
Common dietary triggers include the following
Alcohol - Particularly wine and beer
Caffeine overuse or caffeine withdrawal
Chocolate
Aspartame - eg, NutraSweet and Equal
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) - May be found in Asian food, canned soup, frozen or processed foods, and the seasoning product Accent
Fruits - Citrus fruits, bananas, avocados, and dried fruit
Nuts - Peanuts, soy nuts, and soy sauce
Tyramine, a biogenic amine that accumulates in food as it ages, may provoke migraine. Sources include the following:

Dairy - Aged cheese
Meat - Bacon, sausage, luncheon meat, deli meat, pepperoni, and smoked or cured meat
Pickled foods
Heavily yeasted breads - Eg, sourdough
Vinegars - Especially wine vinegar
Some types of beans
Nutraceuticals shown to be effective in randomized clinical trials include the aforementioned vitamin B2, CoQ-10, magnesium, and butterbur (Petadolex)

Get to a doctor if the problem persists.

regarding the tummy ache simple antispasmodics like phloroglucinols would suffice. Get to a doctor if the problem persists.Might need some work up.
take care
