I have been in and out of the Dr's for a while now with my youngest son who is 17 months old. Finally, the dr. said we have tried everything and you need to take hime to a GI specialist. So she sceduled an appointment for next week. Today he has been crying won't stand straight, grunting, and saying Owie at least once an hour. Should I take him to the ER?Answer Question

I think you should probably take him to the ER now. My little brother had poo issues and by the time my mom had decided to take him the the hospital (against the Dr. advice) my brother had septic poisoning. So unless you are going to get an appointment tomorrow. I would bring him today. The can at least help you get him cleaned out, until the Dr. can see you. Good luck!

My daughter has the same problem, although, it is not as bad as it was when she was younger. She is 5 almost 6 and would not go poo at all. My doctors and I tried everything to make her go so they sent me to see a specialist. They ran all kinds of test and found nothing. I used to give her enema's to make her go. I had to give one to her every 2 or 3 days so she wouldn't get stopped up bad. I think she didn't go because she had the memories hurting her, so she would hold it. She still won't go unless I make her go, but now I make her sit on the toilet and she will go without help. I hope everything works out for you and your little one. I had a hard time with it and did everything I could. Have you looked into natural ways to lubricate the intestines? Message me if you want to talk about it.
