Child complaining of pain in sides while coughing. Complaining of soreness in chest, arms, hip, feet. Cause?

Hi my 9 year old son says his sides hurt when he coughs. I pushed all around on his stomach & told him to tell me exactly where it hurts. And every time I pushed right above his hip bones in the front, he said it hurt. He s complaining about having a sore chest , sore arms, hips, knees & feet . He doesn t have any flu like symptoms at all. He s just sore. Can you please tell me what might be causing him to be sore? He didn t do anything out of the ordinary in the past few days. I m very concerned.

your child is having pain in right side in front and above hip bones and soreness all over many areas in body, it means this child is having some blood changes means might be TLC rise or possibilities of having appendicitis , therefore you consult with any surgeon or investigate blood count and level of electrolytes , so ultimate conclusion can be made for diagnosis of child problem.
Further I advice you to start antibiotic course along with some analgesics round the clock for 5-7 days.
Hope you will find solution and good luck
