It could possibly be some type of stomach bug that is going around. Is there any other syptoms, diarreah, throwing up, etc? If u don't think It is a bug u should probably take him/her to the dr. Hope this helps.
Pain is a symptom and should always be checked out. But if he has a tummy ache for one day it may be gas or something he ate. If it continues then he needs to be checked out. If it's a bug he will have other symptoms. Where the pain is exactly, can be a clue. So if he complains again ask him to point to where it hurts, and ask if the pain stays in the one spot or does it move, ask if anything else hurts and take his temp, this will tell you if he is fighting something. Take care.
My 4 year old had sickness and diarrhea but now is crying in pain that her stomach hurts we have been to our gp and said she's fine but I'm still worried think walk in centre or a&e shall I be worried
