Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Hello, How bad is the pain? Is this new for him? Does the pain move around? Worse with taking a deep breath? Did the meds help?
Hi, on a scale he said it was a 5-6. This is new, he sometimes has stomack aches but I just tell him he needs to use the bathroom but he already has. The pain is in one spot front in the stomach and the back some spot. He said it does not hurt when taking a deep breath. The meds did not help.
Thanks. If pain persists for 3-4 hours or gets worse, I'd take him to be evaluated in person. It is likely from gas, "heartburn" from something he ate, or relative constipation. Would avoid motrin or other NSAID since that can irritate the stomach.
He said that he feels good when laying down but hurts real back when sitting or standing up now. Should I see if he needs to use the bathroom again?
Yes. Again, if pain gets worse he should be seen in ER or his pediatrician's office.
Ok thank you
