Child vomiting with stomach pain. Appendicitis?

My 9 year old boy has been vomiting with stomach pain for just over a day. Concerned it may be more than a stomach flu , perhaps appendicitis?... Temperature from normal to 99. He says pain is like an ache, cramp , not sharp or stabbing. He stopped vomiting, nothing today but he s also not eaten. A couple normal bowel movements. No stomach swelling. Doesn t hurt more on the right side, just everywhere. I, his dad, has IBS, so I m quite used to the pain that accompanies it. My ex wife is wondering if she should rush him to emergency.

Hello,
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
If I were your's son treating doctor I would come up with these measures.
1 As overeating or hyper acidity may be the cause of such vomiting so take light diet and also plain as liquid , fluid , juice with banana . As vomiting already under control so need not worry and in my opinion no need to visit an E R . If vomiting reoccurs then consult E R.
2 Rest is very important for this little boy 1-2 days .
As due to vomiting certain essential minerals deplete so child may feel pain all over body.
Avoid fried food , junk food , spicy food , chocolates , drinks with caffeine in them .
In my opinion antacid is necessary for 3-5 days .
Good luck. Dr. HET
