What is the cause of recurrent abdominal pain in 6 years old ?

Hello! My 6 year old son has recurring abdominal pain . He usually complains his tummy hurts pointing to his navel area often in the morning and at bedtime. The recurrent abdominal pain has been occuring on and off for several months. I ve tried to monitor his diet , bowel movements, stress order to determine the cause, but with no real answers. Not sure how to proceed... your hypothesis and feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Concerned Mom

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
Your son may be suffering from Gastroenteritis or Appendicitis since he is pointing the pain to be around navel. Is your kid in the habit of eating soaps or mud (Geophagia). Get him examined by a Pediatrician, so that he can rule out any underlying pathology. He may need a Ultrasound scan or Abdominal X ray.
Good Luck and Take Care.
