Welcome in H.C.M.

Your query is clearly reflecting your acute inflammatory pathology of upper respiratory tract which you feel as sore throat and stuffiness. Your severe pain in abdomen may be due to acute mesentric lymphadenitis.

Abdominal pain due to upper respiratory tract infection is quite common in children and the pathophysiology behind this is very simple because infected discharge of upper respiratory tract is swallowed most of the time mainly in children which give rise to inflammation of intestines and associated lymph nodes. this will ultimately present as acute abdomen.

You may take now-

1- Antibiotic.

2- Anti inflammatory.

3- Warm saline gargling.

4- Steam inhalation.

I hope this will help you.
