What causes stomach ache and lethargy in a child?

Hi there. My 4 year-old daughter has been complaining of her stomach hurting and she is very lethargic, taking naps on and off. This is the 3rd day of this. No vomit, no diahrea, and no fever. Just a virus working its way through or should I take her to her doctor?

Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi, stomach pain should not be ignored, for the only reason the kid will have a tough time dealing with it..
One thing we should recollect as to whether the kid was dewormed or not?
Secondly has the kid been taking food and water properly, bcoz this can cause acidity and can aggravate the existing stomach pain.

Whatever it could be, I would suggest that the kid be taken to a paediatrician and examined.

Thank you
