Comment from: Fil, 7-12 Male (Caregiver) Published: June 21

My child has been with stomach pain for over several weeks now. He says it is always there, only at night it's more painful. The pain moves slightly to the other side. He has also been having bursts of coughing throughout the day and more so at night, and it's followed by throwing up and gasping to breathe, and at times losing his breath. Doctors thought it was whooping cough but with a few tests found it wasn't. No one has helped in anyway. They said it may be reflux. Still no help. This has gone on for too long and with no help or support!
