Does anyone have any advice on self injurious behavior. My 12 year old daughter has recently started biteing her arm and screaming like she is in some sort of pain. She is biting so hard that she acutually is breaking the skin and it is a complete bloody mess. We are currently on a witch hunt trying to figure it out from a medical standpoint. It appears that she is in some sort of pain. We are scheduled in the am for a scope into her stomach. She has strong PICA behavior and we are checking to see if she has damaged any area of her GI track. Any ideas?
