I'm at my wit's end here, so while I'm waiting for our ND to call me back I was hoping maybe someone had some thoughts. My ds, age 5, started complaining of stomach pain on Sunday. The pain made him scream and cry, and he ran a fever (about 102) at the same time. We eventually calmed him down and he fell asleep. When he woke up the pain was still there, so I gave him a fever reducer (Motrin). When the fever subsided so did the pain. Monday he was fine - no fever and no pain. Tuesday it began again: intermittent bouts of stomach pain accompanied by fever. Relief came when the fever came down. Yesterday there was nothing again. Today it has started again, although the fever is only about 100 and the pain isn't causing him to scream or cry. He's just miserable and looks ill.
I called my ND 2 days ago, and she said to call again if this continued. I did so earlier and await my callback. But I have scoured the internet to no avail; his symptoms don't seem to fit any stomach issue I can find. Of note is that for a few weeks prior to these bouts of stomach pain he had been randomly complaining that his "belly hurt," but it didn't seem to be a huge issue. (Honestly it seemed more like a way to get out of something lol) But I have to think about that now as well. Earlier today, before the pain flared back up, he told me his tummy was growling "really fast." He said it meant he was really hungry. Shortly afterward his pain returned, although it didn't stop him from eating lunch.
I was just hoping some of you wise mamas might have some insight because my dh and I are worried sick. (Waiting on that dr phone call drives me nuts too - can you tell?)
