What causes pounding in stomach?

My 7 year old is constanting complaining that his stomach is pounding. We went through acid reflux with him already and had a scope to rule out a tear or hernia. The pounding in his stomach has been going on for about a month and his appointment with the specialist is not for another 2 weeks. Any ideas or suggestions? None of the OTC drugs I am giving him are helping
