My 5 year old daughter has been suffering from stomach pain--the type that causes her to collapse to the floor in pain for almost a year now. The severe pain goes away after a few minutes..but lingers as mild-moderate pain on and off throughout the day. My ped. prescribed zantac. I am not convinced.
Her symptoms now have changed a bit. they are tenderness in upper right abdomen, itchy torso, light prown spots on arms, stomach, and back. I also notice that her stools are very sticky--like they stick to the toilet bowl and do not slide down the drain---this happens in all toilets, not just ours. This does not seem normal, especially since I have seen these brown spots.

I agree this is not normal! Has your pediatrician seen her since the appearance of the spots and itchiness? If not, please reconsult him/her, and ask for liver function tests.
