Suggest treatment for hurting in stomach

My 5 year old has told me several times over the last several days that he feels dizzy and his tummy hurts. He does have a little cold, but nothing major. There doesn't seem to ba a pattern as to when he tells me he's dizzy - he says his head is dizzy and his tummy is dizzy? Should I bring him to the doctor?

dont worry theses are associated symptoms with mild viral infections that may attack the chest or the sinuses.
and also got affect the gastrointestinal tract , showing mild abominal pain , because the swallowed mucus may lead to abdomibal pain , gastric upset, or even some diarrhea
but I want to reassure you that will resolve spontaneously with the viral ibfection wuthin a week
you can give him light food like vegetable soup, warm fluids, fruit juice
you can give him analgesic or antipyretic when needed
