Pediatrician 's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.
I can understand your concern.
Your child should be investigated after a physical examination. Such complaints can occur in various conditions that involve the heart or it could be because of a reflux. Such presentation can also be seen in conditions like exercise induced bronchial asthma.
Various investigations like PEFR, ECG, ECHO, Endoscopy etc may be required to arrive at a diagnosis.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
