I have a 20 month old son who wakes every night during sleep with what seems to be stomach pains. He starts off grunting and rolling around, and kicks his legs and pulls them in and out. If I give him his pacifier it will help temporarily, but another hour or two later he will wake again. This has been going on since birth, and the doctor dismisses it every time we bring it up as nothing. .

Our 10-year-old granddaughter is having abdominal pain and she did have a virus before the pain started. Last week she had an endoscopy but it will be another week before the results are back. All other tests have shown nothing, including a CT scan. She's going in to her second week missing school, plus the days she had to be picked up early from school. She's a good student and loves school. We're at our wit's end trying all the prescribed medicines, foods, etc. .
