What causes stomach pain and vomiting in a child?

Hi, my 8yr old son has started to vomit every night after he falls asleep. It started about 4months ago and only happened once a month then once every two weeks and then so on now its happening every night. He doesnt complain his stomach hurts and sometimes he doesnt even know when he has gotten sick. He is a healthy/active boy with No known illnesses. We have tried monitor what he eats and how late he eats, ive even gien him tums before bed still not working. Very concerned...Thank you Mom

Hi,

As per your query, your child has symptoms of stomach pain and vomiting which seems to be due to eating a lot of dairy products in the diet, irritable bowel syndrome, due to hormonal changes and could be due to food allergy.

Need not to worry. For now, eat more fruits and vegetables, drink plenty of water and take ibuprofen or acetaminophen for pain. I would suggest you consult a gastroenterologist for proper examination. The doctor may order stool test, endoscopy and ultrasound. The doctor may change your medicine or prescribe laxative, H2 blockers or antibiotics.

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

Regards,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari, Dentist
