All i know is that my son is in considerable discomfort by the end of each day. over the counter pain killers for children are not effective. the pain has got worse but the bullying has reduced but not et fully eliminated.

Thank you for your query.

While being bullied was your son punched or got hurt. In that case injury will have to be ruled out.

When children get bullied they will express bizarre symptoms and have to be handled very cautiously and caringly. It will be better if the issue is discussed with the teacher and the concerned students in the school so that the fear goes out.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
