Customer Question

My 7 yearold boy has been having stomach pain and not sleeping. We have been to the ER twice and ran the gammit of tests. We have been told everything looks normal. Ultrasound revealed nohing, but only looked for appendicitis. He is constantly moving his legs and holding his belly, near his navel and says it is noticeable on his sides. When standing he is folding foward and looks miserable.
Our pediatrician has suggested that he may be experiencing issues with kidney stones.
Nothing is helping, he is losing his appetite, only eating a few bites when he does eat. Any suggestions?? Please help!!

Hello, sorry about this illness. Please try to regularize his eating habit with some multivitamin supplement like B complex syrup, drops and give carminative like baby's gripe mixture couple of teaspoonful every 3-4 hours. Ultrasound will mostly demonstrate any kidney stone also so that is unlikely, when test is done, to escape. Hope is not losing weight, otherwise more studies will be warranted like stool test blood work etc.

My son has told me he is getting the sensation of swallowing vommit. We are getting short relief with antacids, are there any other remedies you might suggest?To further my previous explanation, he has had all necessary blood and urine panels. With the first ER visit there was blood in his urine that were made aware of.I am becoming very concerned because we cannot make him comfortable, and believe this situation is worsening.

Twice daily Renitidine may reduce acid reflux he is describing, with 2-3 hourly antacid. Blood cells etc in urine test suggests nephritis like condition. Please repeat urine tests and get bacterial culture, serum creatinine etc tested.
