stomahe issues with 4 year old..
Hi there, i apologise for this being long but maybe someone has some ideas..
for a long time now, id say noticabley for a year or so, my 4 year old gets a sore stomache.. we will be walking down the road and he'll hold is stomache, say "ouch" and then carry on walking.. its spontanious, i was putting it down to him drinking his drinks to fast becasue for a while there i noticed he'd drink then say his tummy was sore.. sometimes i thougt it was an excuese to get out of things such as going to bed or going to kindy on the days he'd rather stay home.. one day, not to long ago we were walking to kindy and he said his tummy was sore, i said, "youll be fine" and we carried onto kindy.. he seemed fine, then when we were walking home, he threw up! once he threw up he was fine..
about a month ago, maybe two months, he started saying his penis hurt..again, he'd just be watching tv or playing and all of a sudden grab it saying it hurt.. well i took him to the dr and the dr said that he was just growing, he tested for an infection and that came back clear.. so i excepted that, but he is still saying at times that it hurts..
now, the nite before last, he was fine all day, we had a bbq dinner, he had tea, reluctantly and at 2 in the morning threw up.. at one point he held his stomache and actually took himself off the couch onto the floor, curled in a ball and holding his stomache saying his tummy hurt,, he gave the impession that it was a sharp pain..he pinpointed his lower tummy just above the groin area.. his temp was up but with pamol came down.. the
next day he just lay on the couch all day, wouldnt eat, wouldnt drink, but this morning woke up good as gold.. today he had the penis thing happen where it hurt, just for a second or two then he carried on playing..
I have crohns disease and no that there is a chance he could develp that but have spoken to the dr who has said unless he starts getting diarreah, then he wouldnt worry about it, but i am wondeiring if there could be something else going on with him.. i was thinking last night that it could be his apendix? and perhaps he is confusing the penis pain with his lower abdomin.. four year olds arent very well exquipt at describing pain so perhpahs something liek that could be haphpening?
do you think i should be concered about this?
at this stage he experiances bouts of pain moves on pretty quickly, so its not bothering him to bad that i can tell, unless he has just become accustiomed, i dont know.. any thoughts?
sorry this was soooooo long, thank you to anyone who reads..
