6 year old son, strange severe stomach pain

My son has been having severe stomach pain (in his mid to upper abdomen only), off and on for 9 days now. The pain is sharp/stabbing and can last for 2-6 hours at a time, then it goes away and he's fine. All blood work, urine work, X-rays and CT scan were normal. At first he vomited some during the first 4-5 days, but he does not vomit now. He has never had a fever or diahreah during this time. His pain usually shows up around 6 PM and can last through the night, but he is normal during the day. His physician and ER Docs thinks it some viral bug he has. Nothing gives him comfort when the pain begins. He is not having very good or that many bowel movements either, although he has been on a bland diet. Any thoughts?

Re: 6 year old son, strange severe stomach pain

Just a thought but when my son was about that age he was having very severe stomach pains that he would literally scream in pain. He had an abdominal ultrasound that was normal and was sent to a pediatrician. It actually turned out to be constipation although he was going to the bathroom but I guess it was really backed up so I didn't know he was constipated. The family dr. figured it out and said that a full colon like that can cause muscle spasms that are very painful. The treatment was metamusil and the problem went away.
