Question: My 11 yr. old grandson has had a pain in the stomach area off and on for 2 wks. - - so bad he had to come off the soccer field. An X-Ray showed nothing wrong. Blood work showed a low(?) white count. He has no N &V , no diarrhea orconstipation. Do you have any ideas re this?

Brief Answer:
Hi

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to the HCM
I understand your concerns, but I need more information on this to help you out in a definitive way.
1. The location of pain ( you may describe in relation to navel), type of pain
2. Upload the blood report and also go for an ultrasound abdomen and KUB. This is mainly to rule out any stones in the system.

You may ask him to take the following measures. These are emperical and might help him:
1. Tell him to have lots of water, lemonade or other fluids during sports to prevent dehydration.
2. Start an antacids such as Tab Omeprazole once before breakfast in morning.
3. Diet low in refined sugars and good in proteins , especially before the work up.
4. Take rest in between in case he feels that pain is starting instead of going for extremes.

Hopefully this will help. Kindly follow up with the reports so that I may help you further in a definitive way.
Take care
