My 4 year old son has complained of pain on his left side

Customer Question

Hi. My 4 year old son has complained of pain on his left side (he calls it his stomach but when he points it's the side) for the past 4 days. It's usually in the morning. He has been eating/drinking normally and playing fine. He has had bowel movements everyday. I'm wondering if it's just gas pains or if I need to take him in to see someone?
JA: How long have you been in pain? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?
Customer: No vomiting or nausea.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
