  • My 11 yr old gets indigestion/gas a lot. He was very colicky as a baby. We had some tests and ended up being told to use the Multi-Symptom Rolaids, they help gas, indigestion ect.. If that seems to help you probably have the culprit. You might give it a try. If something seems really serious take him to the doctor. We ended up going to the dr because it lasted awhile and I never dreamed an 11 yr old would have indigestion issues!

  • Did he recently fall down and hurt himself? My daughter once fell at the park and had terrible pain like you described and we thought that perhaps she broke her sternum; turns out she only pulled some of the muscles in her chest. She was sore for a few days and then was back to her normal self.
