Treatment of Moderateto Severe Recurrent Abdominal Pain

Recognition of stressors alone may not be sufficient to alter the frequency and severity of the pain, and these patients may need psychological testing to provide additional information, such as coping and problem-solving skills, symptoms, and problems that might not have been previously determined, and other possible sources of stress. Academic testing assesses whether the child is functioning at grade level and at the expected developmental level. Learning and communication disorders might hinder academic performance and contribute to stress. The goal of this testing is to assess whether there are previously unrecognized biological, cognitive, emotional, academic, and/or social problems that might have been caused by or might contribute to a patient's stress and consequently lead to pain and disability. Although time consuming and expensive, testing is essential when a child's abdominal pain is overwhelming and disabling and fails to respond to the usual recommended measures.
