We have spoken with his doc and are getting him in monday morning, so that's underway.
For maybe a month or so he has been complaining here and there about tummy aches. At first we thought he was adjusting to preschool or just wanted to play instead of sit and eat. Well then he didn't want to eat dinner, and if he did he would only eat a little, even if it was something he liked. Within half an hour he was usually pale green and on the toilet with diarrhea. This soon became an an every day occurrence, only once a day. We started paying more attention at this point. Last week he started to have tummy pain more often, even at school. He will have normal stools, not always diarrhea unless he is is feeling sik at the time. It comes and goes, he still plays and is active and acts totally normal. Seems like it usually comes on after eating. It can be anything. We are logging what he eats now. On Halloween he puked after lunch (apple, chicken sandwich, pumpkin muffin)(waffles for breakfast) and then the same happened yesterday ( school.unchhe only wanted milk applesauce and crackers). Today he was great after eating chex for breakfast, but then we grabbed some McDonald's at lunch (I know, bad choice).. He had a mcgriddle, and it has wiped him out! No pukebut stomache pain so bad he cried til he fell asleep.
I'm thinking gluten? Anyone else have ideas?
