2 year old complaining all night of stomach pain, vomited. Had auscultation of chest/back in accident. Suggestion ?

My son 2 year old son was up complaining all night that his stomach hurt. He woke up this am and has vomited several times. It is like nothing I have smelled before, dark brown in color and he just can t sit still and complains his belly hurts. He was in a car accident the other day with my husband. They were rear-ended at about 50 MPH. Hospital checked him out and released him. No scans were done, X-rays. Just auscultation of his chest/back. At first I thought maybe it could just be flu but now I m thinking with the car wreck it could be more? What do you suggest?

Thank you for your mail.

If your son is complaining of stomach pain and vomitings then he needs to be re-examined and managed accordingly. An initial examination following a car accident can be normal and things can manifest after some time. It is for no reason that it has been commented that the abdomen is a "Pandora's Box" and hence it is difficult to suggest a cause for the pain and vomitings.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son all the best.
