stomach

My foster daughter just turned 14 and has continual stomach problems.  The doctor ,which I have had two opinions,wants to diagnose dyspepsia.  I finally got an approval from their therapist that she does not believe that it is psycosymatic.  She has had two endoscopys, gall bladder check, ultra sounds, and ct scan.  she is on 40 mg of prilosec and her stomach is at a constant 5 with it elevated at night.  This stomach pain does not let up most of the time and bothers her at karate, disneyland, everywhere.  Her mind can be occupied and she will have stomach pain and it alters her ability to function.  We did a allergy test with blood work and she is allergic to eggs.  Thank goodness we found that because she was in the nurses office on a daily basis last year, and is able to function at school this year.  She likes school and does not feel any more stress than a normal teenager.  She says her stomach has hurt since she was six. any suggestions please she is too young to have to go through this on a daily basis.
