My son started complaining his stomach was hurting.
Symptoms include: sharp pain behind belly button and scream at the top of his lungs pain that lasts 2-3 minutes and comes back every 20-30 minutes. The pain usually starts late afternoon and lasts till morning. *Note there is no blood in urine or stool, he hasn’t vomited and seems to be a normal kids. Some days it’ll last all day. It’s been 10 days so far. Sometimes fever but doesn’t last.
Anyways after one day and a sleepless night we saw our family Dr who thought it might be a stomach bug and should pass. Two days later we had enough and went to children’s emergency here in London Canada. They put in an IV and have him morphine as Tylenol and IB doesn’t have an effect on his pain. Once he is calm down they did blood test, urine test, ultrasound and x ray. Everything came back looking great. Good news is it’s not intestinal, bladder (UTI), stomach or appendix! Bad news they don’t know what it is. Agree it is probably a bug. The next night same thing, over the top screams of pain. Went back into emergency, saw another doctor who did a more thorough ultrasound and blood etc. Nothing. Over the next few days he seemed to improve by which I mean less pain and screaming. 3-4 hour intervals or pain. Now we are on day 10 and we are losing our minds to the sleep deprivation.
