My 11 y/o son has recently had nausea, stomach pain, decreased appetite, and occasional headaches. This has gone on for about 3 weeks now. I took him to our pediatrician who felt that his liver was enlarged. He ran a panel of blood tests to see how the liver was functioning and what is blood count was. Then he ordered a CT scan. Everything came back normal. My son is still feeling sick. I am wondering what tests we should look into next and what other possibilities of diagnosis we could look into. He has only vomited a few times and his activity level seems normal.
