Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Your child is suffering from a stomach bug.
Give him some rest and antispasmodics.
A course of antiacid medications would help too.
Give him simple home made food and lots of fluids.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.

Hi there ~

Your son does not seem to have ADHD. However you should be concerned for your son's fever, headache and stomach pain which may be due to a gastrointestinal illness. I hope this helps. Take care and have a good day. Have him drink a lot of fluids and ORS.
