3 year old with severe stomach pain, headache. Reason?

My 3 year old son has pain in his stomach and bum and has been to the er twice since tuesday for chronic spasms of pain I am not sure what to do...the hospital did blood work, an ultrasound and they are all clear..he complains of a headache as well but I think that is from crying all the time...he is normally a very happy bubbly child but all he wants to do is lay down and cry

Hi,

If the pain in Abdomen has been investigated and all the reports seems to be normal then most likely cause of pain could be psychological rather than organic.

Maybe the child has some psychological issue which child is not able to speak out in sentences like problem in playgroup or some issues in the family .I would suggest that you speak to your son and spend more time so that reason of his pain could be determined.

Regards
Take Care
