10 yrs old has vomiting, nausea, stomach ache, sore throat, headache and fatigue. On amoxclav. Suggestions ?

My son 10 yrs old has been sick for the last 18 days. He started off with what I thought was the flu because his sister had it. Vomiting, nausea , stomach ache, sore throat , headache and fatigue . She gotten over it after 4 or 5 days but he stayed sick. He is a hyper kid and for the last 3 weeks he s been just laying down everyday. He has a constant headache and says he feels a pulling squeezing painful in his stomach area above his belly button. Nothing I give him helps either pain to subside or be relieved I have taken him to the er 4 times and his doctor 2 times. An ultrasound was done of his stomach they said all his organs look good. They did a CT scan of his head and said they saw nothing. He is on amox clav for what the doc called a sinus infection . They did a blood test a week ago and said he had traces of mono but did not have the virus. Please help he is hurting constantly with headache and stomach ache

Hi
Thank you for your query
His headache can be explained with the sinusitis. With due course of antibiotics it should resolve. Try giving him some steam inhalation. It is very helpful and also relieves the headache. The stomachache can either be a gastritis or a colic. If is is gastritis it should respond well to antacids. Please don't give his medications empty stomach. Try some probiotics like curd. Else he may require an antispasmodic. You need to consult your doctor to get one of those prescribed.
Hope this helps. God bless you!!
