Gray poop and stomach pains

My 5 year old has EE. He has been on prevacid for 5 months now. For the past 3 days he has had loose gray/clay colored stools. This morning he complained of severe abdominal pain.  He has had a low grade fever for the past week.  Can this be linked to his medication or is it something else?

Please call the doc. When the color of the stools goes toward a grey or whitish color, it suggests the release of bile is not being properly done. Bile is the substance that gives the fecal material it's characteristic brown color. Lack of bile = lack of color.
