How to cure frequent stomach pain and fever?

hello Doctor. my 4.5 year old kid (boy) complains of frequent stomach pain which lasts few minutes. This has been since past few weeks. From his reactions, it looks like it is moderate pain lasting few minutes and he settles down. He has constipation problem for which we give him Cremalax twice a week. Today he has mild fever and same stomach pain and also vomiting. We have given him panadol (paracetamol 5 ml) and Emeset 5 ml to stop vomiting. We are taking him to doctor tomorrow. Is this something serious.

Hi...by what you quote this doesn't appear as serious illness to me. Pain abdomen is quite common if the kid is having constipation and might get aggravated if there is fever. Usually rather than fever, what is more important is the activity of the child, in between 2 fever episodes on the same day. If the kid is active and playing around when there is no fever, it is probably viral illness.
