My grandson has a history of abdominal pain. He has runny stools, vomiting, severe fatigue, but no fever. This is not an everyday occurrence, but does occur more than 2 or 3 times a month. He is ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and is on Zoloft, omeprazole, Claritin and fiber. This has been an ongoing thing since he was 7 and he is now 15. Gall bladder has been removed. Normal testing doesn't show any blockages. At 7 he had 2 subdural hematomas from a wreck and we don't know if that has anything to do with his problems but this was about when symptoms started. He is being treat by a pediatric doctor and neuro-therapist for all of this, still no help. My daughter is at her wits’ end..

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. .
