My grandson has had abdominal complaints over the past

Customer Question
My grandson has had...

My grandson has had abdominal complaints over the past couple of weeks. We’ve had him to the doctor but nothing much has come of it. He’s pretty active so we’ve just thought it would pass. Today at school his teacher told us that he had a blue tongue with blue saliva - he was asked if he’d been eating lollies or anything blue and he said no. We believe him because he’s not a great lollie eater. Then the teacher indicated there was a second example later in the day where his tongue appeared blue - were taking him to the doctor again but what are your thoughts? He’s 11 years old

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Apart from stomach complaints and now the blue tongue, there doesn’t seem to be anything else. He’s always been fussy with food

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

No- he’s had the stomach complaint on and off ongoing for a while now

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
