Customer Question
My 6 year old...

My 6 year old started complaining late last night that her right side hurt. She said it hurt when she sat, walked or laid down. She was still playful so i thought maybe gas. She finally went to sleep but has woken up complaining it still hurts and the pain is now switching back and forth from left to right side. She does have urinary reflux but states it doesnt hurt when she goes pee. No fever.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

No recent injuries. She said moving around makes it worse but pain still there when she lays down which makes it hard for her to sleep.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in the child's medical history you think the doctor should know?

No thats it.

How is her bowel habit?

When did she pass stool last? Any tender point or swelling? Any other symptom?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Day before yesterday. No swelling but states if press on side it hurts. She is now saying her tummy hurts. Where she says it hurts is lower right side more towards abdominal area.
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 8 months ago

There can be gas causing spasm of intestine.

As she passed stool 1 day back it is possible.

An infection or iinflammation is possible too.

If it continues she would need an examination by doctor.

You can give her Tylenol.

Warm application can be soothing.

Best wishes

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.
