What causes constant stomach pain in a child?

My son is constantly complaining about a stomach ache. It can be morning, noon or night. I haven t found a common thread during these times like eating a specific food. He also worries himself so much about school work that I think that triggers it sometimes. Could there be an underlying cause? He s 10 years old.

Hi,

I have just read through your question. Whatever you are describing is called Chronic Pain Abdomen in medical terms.

The differential diagnosis of abdominal pain in children varies with age, gender, genetic predisposition, nutritional exposure and many environmental factors.

The causes are many including - constipation / acid peptic disorders / inflammatory bowel disorders / irritable bowel syndrome / worm infestation etc.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Sumanth Amperayani, Pediatrician, Pulmonology
