In need of some assistance or advice.
I have a 6 yr old son. He attends before and after school care and is in Yr 1. He's very confident- chats to anyone. He is known to be the outgoing one in the family (never stops talking).
For a while now, he's been getting tummy pains through the night. On and off- no real pattern. No real consistency to food/days/activities etc. Not all the time either, maybe once a month? I'll tell him to sit on the toilet for a bit to see if he needs to do a poo, he'll try that and usually come back with it not being resolved. It usually ends in me giving him some nurofen/panadol- after which he is fine and will go back to sleep.
By the morning he is fine. I have taken him to the doctors the morning after and they've pressed and prodded and what not and nothing. Not to mention, it never eventuates to sick.
Although he tells me he doesn't want to get up, doesn't want to go to school/before and after school care- it's never a huge deal. I say, it's something we have to do just for the next 12months and than we'll have a big long holiday together- he doesn't cry, whinge or carry on. On the most part he enjoys school. He's in the top reading group, good at maths, not any area I can see he struggles in.
So, what to do? Anyone experienced this? I can't find anything wrong physically- could it be a mental thing? He being anxious? I don't know- I need some answers.
