My 8-year-old son looks like he's having contractions in his stomach every couple mins that last for 10 secs at night (from 10pm-12am) daily. During the day time he has them 5 secs every 3 hrs. Headaches are sharp during time of contraction pains (sharp like throwing up but can't.) He also has had a 1 minute seizure during one contraction of pain in stomach. He's also having difficulty urinating. It stings when he goes pee. Went to pediatrician & ER, they gave him cephalexin & florastor. They have no idea what it is after many blood and urinetests that came up normal.Had CAT scan done came up with cloudy lining around stomach. What's wrong with him? What can I do?
I know you asked this question a long time ago, but I was wondering if you had found any answers. It sounds like a terrible ordeal for your son and your family. I hope he found relief.
Many children do complain of stomach pain and cramping/contracting. There are several possible causes, but I am sure you have consulted with many doctors at this point. He could have been suffering from Acid Reflux, Celiac, Lactose Intolerance, or Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Of course only the doctor can make the final diagnosis.
I have suffered from Acid Reflux, Lactose Intolerance, and IBS for many years and can empathize. I have found relief through diet, supplements, and medication.

I hope all is well.
I am so sorry you are dealing with this. I wish I had answers for you but unfortunately this is not a pattern of symptoms I am at all familiar with. I hope you get some answers soon!
