Hi!
Your son probably has chronic constipation and this could be the cause of stomachache. Chronic constipation can be due to diet poor in roughage or fiber, dehydration, diabetes, hypothyroidism, colon disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticular diseases, cancers, severe acidity etc. It can also be due to milk allergy and other food allergies.
Stop milk and see if it helps. Increase his fiber and fluid intake. Maybe these tips will help. Also, please consult his pediatrician to rule out the various other causes of constipation mentioned earlier. Take care!
