My 4 year old son was on Azithromycin for 5 days. He was diagnosed with bronchiolitis. He was given breathing treatments for 1 week and Azithromycin. He started having stomach issues (upset stomach) at the time of taking Azithromycin. That was 6-7 weeks ago. He has continued to have these same issues. We've been to his pediatrician, had blood tests run (nothing abnormal). He was on Zantac for 1 week with no changes. We've had him on a probiotic for 4 weeks approximately with no changes. His pediatrician asked us to track what he's eating for 1 week. We did. He's eating the same things he did prior to the bronchiolitis but now has upset stomach with or without eating. Not at all times but about 1/2-3/4 of the day he says his stomach hurts ("feels yucky" his words). Now the pediatrician wants us to track his eating for another 3 weeks. Since it's the same food prior to the sickness, I don't understand how that could have any effect on his stomach. It all began with the sickness. I'm frustrated because I want my son to feel normal again. Sometimes his stomach is very upset and other times just a little bit. Please help. thank you.
