Hi, my 15 year old daughter has lost 2.5 stone of weight in 5 months. Coupled with stomach pains and vomitting. Calprotectin level is raised at 120 but everything else is totally normal. However, recently she has been eating less and less because she says it makes her feel sick or gives her pain and is only nibbling on very small amounts of food. I have noticed when she gets stressed or has significant upset she is automatically sick which makes me wonder if perhaps this is more a psychological thing? Am worrying that she has got it into her head that eating makes her feel sick rather than it being a physical thing? Are these symptoms common of IBD(yet to have diagnosis). Is it common to feel that when you take a mouthful of food you feel like its stuck in your throat or that its going to come back up? At wits end. Shes barely drinking either and at the moment is in hospital having been admitted yesterday. Can caprotectin be raised simply just because or is it generally linked to other things? In my mind it isnt raised enough to be causing all these symptoms but then agan i am only going by what i read and that some people have 600 plus levels. She says she feels sick all the time. Many thanks
