Every morning my son has a tummy ache and sometimes throws up. It is EVERY morning. At first we thought maybe the bus rides to school were making him sick because he would throw up everytime he got off the bus. So, I started taking him to school everyday and it seemed to help with the throwing up but he still wakes up every morning with a bad tummy ache. We are very close and talk a lot. He has a lot of friends and doesn't get picked on. He does have bad allergies so I don't know if maybe the nightly drainage from his nose if affecting him or if it is something else. He also gets car sick sometimes. It is mostly on curvy roads or long distances. I have talked to our pediatrician and she told me to fake like I am giving him placebo medicine to see if he is faking. I know he isn't faking, he just isn't that kind of kid and I can tell he isn't faking. Any suggestions? Should I have him checked by someone else?
My nephew used to get sick all of the time, like your son it was a daily thing. After looking into several other things we fund out he had a gluten alergy (allergy). Unlike other food alergy (allergy)'s gluten is in many things so it is hard to diagnose. We changed his diet to a gluten free diet and he has been fine ever since.
Hello, momof1son! Thanks for your comment. He was on singulair several years ago but became somewhat immune to it, it just wasn't helping anymore. We have tried Zyrtec and Claritin but the same is happening with those, they just aren't working anymore. I haven't given him anything for several months now and the pediatrician has finally set up an appointment with an allergist so hopefully this will help to isolate where the problems are coming from. Thanks for your reply though, I will also bring this up with the pediatrician as this stomach problem as been an issue for quite some time now.
Hello, AidanTiarra! Thanks for your comment! I hadn't really thought of anything like this and that would TOTALLY make sense especially since some days seem worse than others. I have an appointment for both of my sons with the allergist in July and I will DEFENITELY be bringing this up. I guess the reason I didn't really think it was something like that is because it is, most of the time, only in the mornings. I would say that at least 95% of the time this occurs in the mornings only which really puzzles me. Thanks so much!
My son has occasional vomiting and we found out has has reflux or GERD. we take him to a pediatric digestive dr. we manage the symptoms with his diet and elevating the head of his bed. sometimes he also need medication.
