Sandy asks…

Stomach pains in children only at night?

My sister is 8 years old, and she gets a stomach ache only at night. This happens about 1 hour or two after dinner. She says that it hurts more when she pushes on her stomach near the belly button area. She usually feels nauseated as well. However the pain eventually goes away in about half an hour. But this time, it took a little longer for the pain to go away. This has been going on for about a week now.

Does anyone have any idea what this might be?

We’ve been to the doctor but they didn’t say much.

Nutritionatlast answers:

You need to take him to new pediatrician, write down all of his symptoms and the frequencies. Make a chart of everything he eats and drinks, approximate time, and then when the pain starts. Also keep track of his bowel movements. Have an xray done, maybe he swallowed something along time ago and it did not pass..could be lodged somewhere along the gastrointestinal tract. Keep pressing for answers until your child is well.
