For the past couple of weeks my almost 5 year old son has been saying off and on that his tummy hurt.  For the past 2 days he says his tummy hurts every single time he eats.  He hasn't thrown up and he's been having regular daily stools.  


The other odd thing he's been saying the past couple of weeks is that we look small.  he'll say it maybe once a day, sometimes not everyday.  My first thought was delirious, but theres been no fevers.  His eyesight also seems just fine and he hasnt shown any signs of dizziness.  I thought maybe inner ear fluid as well since we had flown a month ago and he aid that his ear hurt on the plane.  But never again after that.


We have our 5 year check up in a month and a half, but i'll have to take him in sooner if this continues.  will they do bloodwork? stool sample?  what else should i ask to be done/seen? other questions?

Im no doctor but i have heard of Alice in wondeland syndrome. Sounds made up i know but its a real thing. There could be reasons for the syndrome and they can be neurological. But i have also heard that some people kind of "grow out of it". definitely something to bring up with your doctor. If possible sooner than later.
