My 8 year old has begun complaining of two symptoms lately

Customer Question

My 8 year old has begun complaining of two symptoms lately that worry me. One is sudden sweats during the day even when she is standing still. The second symptom is pain on her right side between the bottom rib and her hip. She says it hurts when she walks for a bit. This sounds like "stitches" but I don't understand why she just noticed it two days ago and it's occurred almost every time we have walked around since she first had it The side pain occurs in her right side and when she punches her side she says it feels better. That sounds like the stitches pain I used to get if I ran after a meal. I just don't understand why she is seeming to have it all the time when she walks

Her symptoms (off an on sweats and pain between rib and hip) can be suggestive of;a) Mild grade intestine infection.b) Kidney stonec) Mild appendicitis.She should get an x-ray, ultrasound and blood counts for the evaluation. Many times these above medical issues have subtle symptoms and are diagnosed only by the work up.
