Perfect child, stomach pain

Article

I recently saw a 9-year-old girl who had a five-month complaint of functional abdominal pain. Her parents were skeptical of the diagnosis. They told me their daughter was a model student, had lots of friends, and was engaged in a (reasonable) number of extracurricular activities. The girl was not uncomfortable during the visit and seemed eager to please her parents.
