Child has stomach pain, nausea. History of constipation. Should I go to doctor?

My almost 8 year old daughter is experiencing tummy pain - she is in tears and says it hurts ALL over (rubbing her tummy from the ribs down) - she also said it doesn t feel like a puking tummy ache and she has had constipation problems but that is also not the case. She also says it hurts when I push around on her? It is late and I gave her some tylenol but is this something that should be looked at by her doctor or even the ER tonight? Thanks! :) Jessica

Hello ...

Stomach pain and nausea - You should get her evaluated once for her complaint to get her examined physically by a pediatrician. And take appropriate medicine

For constipation -

It is due to wrong adoptive bowel habit,dietetic error etc
continue using laxative, child get habitual for that and essential body element also goes.

I Would Advice:

1.High Fiber diet - whole grains , vegetable, fruits etc.
2.Adopting healthy bowel habit.
3.Encourage child to spend time in toilet after meals.
4.Give plenty of water.
5.Applying warm, moist cloth to the anus , stimulating bowel movements. Mild Laxative,
6.Offer age-appropriate positive reinforcement for developing regular toilet habits
7.Plenty of water
8.Proper and Regular Diet(Break fast/ lunch/Snacks/Dinner)
9.Proper counseling
10.Toilet Training
11.Encourage for defecation after each meals.
